But you are here.

Thought I would post this poem I wrote. Hope you like it.

But you are here.

If I woke to a summer’s day
With the gentle breeze blowing my way
And the birds singing sweetly in the trees
But you’re not there, would I care?

If I heard a voice so pure
Singing melodies so sure
Rousing choruses exquisitely tuned
But you’re not there, would I care?

If laughter filled the place
Bringing smiles upon our face
Sides hurting us as we gasp for air
But you’re not there, would I care?

If all the money came rolling in
Like a massive lottery win
All financial problems a thing of the past
But you’re not there, would I care?

If I have the love of friends all around
With relationships, so profound
A companion at the end of every call
But you’re not there, would I care?

If I am feeling rather ill
Everyday taking a pill
Feeling rough with no end in sight
But you are here, would I fear?

Feeling betrayed by ones I call friend
Let down by ones on which I depend
Abandoned by all and left alone
But you are here, would I fear?

Life is piling on stress
My work and relationships in a mess
Lost in a world that does not care
But you are here, would I fear?

If I am sick of starvation
Feeling oppressed by domination
Having no hope of freedom in my life
But you are here, would I fear?

If I have nothing left to give
And have lost the will to live
I am at the end of everything I am
But you are here, would I fear?

Without you, happiness is meaningless
With you fear has no hold
With Jesus Christ in our heart
A Father’s grace that will never part
And a Spirit that strengthens me with joy

I will face the fears of today
And keep the darkness at bay
The enemies greatest weapon will I destroy.

Nice poem Silver.

Philip and I were just talking about you, and where you've been. Your ears must've been burning.

Hope you're doing well! :D

Been a crazy year Rick. Gave up my teaching job - went back to software and had another baby. Been on a bit of a journey with my faith, in a good way I think.
