A Trilogy

Oh how I believe in love
and all of its wondrous goodness
in the brilliance of the stars above
made by a God who wants to bless us
yes it all comes down to a simple choice
to have calm in your life
and hear that still small voice
then heed what it’s telling you
and watch what love can do

A boy goes to bed to sleep
only wanting his fathers attention
but all he can do is lie and weep
desiring only his fathers affection
home from working late now dad is here
to give smiles and a hug
that wipes away each tear
then joy to both will ensue
and that’s what love can do

Oh how I rely on hope
it’s the strength needed for survival
without it how could one ever cope
while waiting for morning’s arrival
it helps lead into the vast unknown
where the path will be good
where your future has flown
just grasp what will get you through
and watch what hope can do

The burdens of life are steep
there are aches, doubts and confusion
a man who has lost it all must leap
to a future without illusion
striving hard to find a job once more
to have food and a bed
behind his own home’s door
so bright is his point of view
and that’s what hope can do

Oh how I rejoice in faith
the cornerstone for all existence
though some hold it in contempt and scathe
owning souls struggling in resistance
believing in that which is unseen
but accepting its truth
will leave a peace pristine
hold fast knowing what is true
and watch what faith can do

As the end of life’s at hand
a man reflects and is satisfied
for God’s goodness he took a stand
lived it right, humbled and gratified
so proud of his family he raised
a good neighbor he was
his soul’s maker he praised
now waiting for life brand new
and that’s what faith can do

Artist's Description

This really took awhile to write
the rhyme scheme and syllable count a bear
but I wanted it to turn out just right
so I wrote it and shaped it with care
