 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.
