I have a secret place,
Where friends are always welcome.
Where warm wishes and happy times abound.

I have a secret place,
Where my family is always safe.
Where all my loved ones stay close at hand.

I have a secret place,
Where God surrounds me with peace and love.
Where I am not afraid to be myself.

I have a secret place,
Where I will take a child in trouble.
Where a tear is turned into a smile.

I have a secret place,
Where no one hurts or feels the pain of sickness.
Where there is enough love for all I meet.

I have a secret place,
Where you are always welcome.
That secret place is my heart.

WOW! This speaks volumes! I love it! And what a wonderful heart! Beautiful, I really enjoyed this!

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

Jo...this is lovely. I have been privalaged in my life to have experienced that secret place. I have to apologize to you for the last few weeks. I have withdrawn from many people dear to my life. When the darkness surrounds me, instead of reaching out, I tend to retreat. Next time I do that give me a kick in the pants would ya?  

Thankyou for reminding me of the comfort I do have in my life. ((HUG))

It`s to bad there isn`t a place open to the public that is as warm and gentle as your heart.
Very sweet.

A beautiful, well-written, heartfelt poem!  You're a gifted poet.  You brought me tears of joy and sorrow.  What a wonderful person you must be!  Wish there were more.  But God gives those He loves, those secret places. I have one inside me too.
