 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


You are my God,

I long for you;

Always to laud,

Faithfully true.


My soul does thirst,

As hunger yearns;

Keeping You first,

As my heart learns.


I yearn for You,

Living on dry land;

Help me construe,

What You command.


In a refuge,

Seeing Your might;

I not refuse,

Be in Your sight.


Such loyal love,

My lips with praise;

All up above,

Through all my days.


I long to live,

As I proclaim;

Because You give,

Blessing my name.


I remember,

While in bed;

In my slumber,

Your thoughts are fed.


Your wings are joy,

Shield me from harm;

Those that destroy,

With misled charm.


My soul pursues,

Your guarding hand;

For Your virtues,

Help me to stand.


Enemies seek,

To destroy life;

But when You speak,

You rid the strife.


I lift my voice,

For they speak lies;

I made my choice,

You made me wise.
