Halloween

I should have felt fear

Instead I wanted to cheer.

I feel blessed indeed

For I felt no need

To wallow in misery.

I feel like my cup is overflowing

You heard my pleas and suffering

Indeed if this is the path you’ve chosen for me

Then I’m content to have made you happy

For all along you were my shepherd.

I offer my thanks this day

There’s nothing more I can say

But words of gratitude and gladness

No more fear and sadness

My heart goes out with love to all souls and saints.


Solace

Hush now and sleep my dear

Tomorrow will be a beautiful morn.

Gently wrap your fingers around mine

And safely sail your dreams with my embrace.

Drop your anchor and lay your troubles

So long buried underneath.

The storm you faced has just passed

and you’ve held your head high.

You’ve been shielding yourself from the waves of pain

Crashing you  down with its weight.

I’ll be the rock to your tears

The balm to your fears.

So slowly close your eyes and just breathe

And like music you’ll hear my heartbeat.

Let me carry you through this night

Where you’ll be at ease and be.


Cross

Sometimes I ask God

When it rains it really pours

And why humans have to cry

Everyday until they die.

Sometimes I ask God

Why everything seems wrong

Because humans have to choose

When they know they’ll lose.

Sometimes I ask God

Why bad things happen

When people only want love

But ask more of what they have.

And sometimes I ask God

When I’m just really down

Like I am carrying the ills of the world

This faith the only thing I can hold.
