(Poem) I Thank You Lord

I Thank You Lord

 

I look up and I see your beauty everywhere

Through a big plate-glass window I do see

Life, and each other’s lives go by each day

Part of their life is lightly, each day part of mine

I thank you Lord for all the good that I have

 

Will the world ever learn to be civil with each other

How often I have been correct, yet occasionally not

Is there a Nirvana right here on our own little Rock

Soon my generation will be the old ones, then gone

I thank you Lord I pray that we all end well with you

 

In my life are many things I’m ashamed that I have done

Those horrid things I have done that sickens my very Soul

With Your Finger your Lightning touched hard me yet I live

Children and theirs breathe because You chose to show Mercy

Lord, each breath I take, each Bird I see, I thank You my Lord
