 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


The reason I still can find hope,
I will keep this one thing in mind;
Just keep smiling while I cope,
That always helps to remain kind.
The Lord has such mercy and grace,
That deletes any and all doubt;
To comfort us with His embrace,
So we are not wholly wiped out.
His compassion is not restrained,
It is new every morning;
Refreshes from the sleep obtained,
As you feel a gentle warming.
His faithfulness is always great,
The Lord helps me through all the strife;
As my soul will patiently wait,
For the Lord is my lot in life.
That is why I find hope in Him,
Knowing that He is always near;
So no need for me to feel grim,
Because with Him I hold no fear.
The Lord is good to those who wait,
From anyone who seeks His aid;
For He is willing to compensate,
So do not ever be afraid.
But it is good to keep trusting,
Waiting softly for Him to save;
Letting us not to start lusting,
A temptation into the grave.
It is good for us to endure,
Burdens while we are still young;
As we get older the same chore,
Done easily for to be hung.
