Sunset of Poetic Phrase


Fear not the closing of a day,
the sunset of poetic phrase,
for stars appear to dress the eve.
To God, Iíll always give my praise.

Iím richly blessed and dearly loved,
by all that care to call me friend.
Although quite ill, I still have peace.
Itís in Godís hands that I might mend.

Each day I wake and beauty, seek.
I share the best for all to see.
Come take my hand and watch me smile.
If this be life, then this be me.

Be parent to a hurting child.
Lend of your strength to those that grieve.
Try not to judge, but understand.
So short the stay, then time we leave.

Count all you have, not what you donít.
Weíre very rich in many ways.
Good health, or ill, please donít forget,
to always give the Lord your praise.

This is how Iíve tried live my life
and how I will forevermore.
For in so doing Iíve made friends,
from richest rich, to poorest poor.

Our lives must end, but donít count years,
nor count the months, not fear the night.
Each day share something of yourself.
My sunĎs not set, I still have light.

Indeed you do dear friend.....much wisdom and faith in your words, and much friendship.  Beautiful writing Michael, hugs and peace to you.

(tears fall down my cheeks) God Bless You, sweet friend, your words always touch a part of my heart that is rarely touched, and I am always deeply moved by the love that beats deep down and how your heart continues to shine with strength and hope even through the greatest of pressure! (BIG HUGGGSSSSS) You are a true angel, sweet friend, never change who you are, for we all love you so much and we will always be here for you every step of the way! God Bless You! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Michael, thank you for sharing!



May love and light alway shine upon you!

Love,

Michael, this is very inspirational.
You do indeed have many friends who love you.
Many of them right here at Passions.
Well done post sir.
