Gerry Legister Poems
Courage sometimes is the quietest voice That roars loudest from within, Making faith a distinctive choice And compelling motivation to try again.
Spring is here Again
Spring is here again taking a shower in the trees Bathing the wind that brings again spring cleaning, Wash the newly formed lawns and greener leaves, Of April; wet days soak deeper in sprinkling spring.
Dancing with the stars
Airy tune plays the starry notes we adore Wind generate the breathe of vibrancy found, A beat tapping polite crescendo upon the floor, Judges joined in the finale of encore sound.
You make me feel special
Under Your spell make me feel special, Share my doubts, remove all my fears When you smile I fall under your spell, You wipe away so many of my tears.
Ashes in the wind
The wound will leave your heart Lost in the shadows again, Ashes in the wind; tearing it apart Death comes with so much pain.
Heaven And Earth
God created heaven and earth We were the fashion renew, God was the creator from birth, And the sky was also new.
If you had been true -new-
I gave you all My love and romance But it was not enough You walked away in malice
When Love Is Not Enough
When in this land you have given your all, And not think twice when someone needs forgiven, Love can cover the hurt every time you fall, But bruises will be hidden beneath the vale of sin.
Heaven is a Beautiful Retreat
I believe that heaven is reserve here on earth, This could be the other paradise in my soul, Justification gain from the realm of new birth, Every step taken the path is pave with gold.
We meet roommates sharing the same space, With complete strangers a new friendship begin, Trying hard to hide their moderate taste, Eating together and barley wearing nothing.
I know who I am
I know who I am I am a child I am a mysterious man I am a special friend
Love not too much by many, Edible flavor found in Sushi, Press into ball shape Varity, Smelled raw like the sea.
When we see summer changes The clothes we wear quickly disappear, And the next season rearranges Clouds more fastidious in the atmosphere.
A Sonnet of Solace
The loss of memory is forgotten in the wind The moment we die before our breathe falter, We are a fading Spectator struggling to the end, And life flushes out the things we cannot alter.

Courage sometimes is the quietest voice
That roars loudest from within,
Making faith a distinctive choice
And compelling motivation to try again.
When obstacles invariably come your way,
Into every direction that you have turned,
A thousand misery comes in a friendlier display
To take away the strength that you have gained.
Faith stands strong like a colossal wall of courage,
Ready to do the things that you could not do.
Bold in confidence with a conquering message,
Making difficult boundaries appeared new.
You can go on overcoming ...
