I May Be Shy


I may be shy

Not with the Lord by my side

I feel more like a Prince

With the King most high by my side



I may be shy

Not with the words of courage I seek in the bible

No strength so soothing as those words

Still reechoes in my mind anywhere I go



I may be shy

Not with your son you sent to save us from sins and torment

No better way to express my joy

Just a look at his old rugged cross, is all I need



I may be shy

Not with the delicious meals you provide for me

Non compares to the nourishment I derive from it

I can raise my head high before my friends anyday



I may be shy

Though at the face of difficulties

Those special advice and courage I’ve found in you

Would see me through, at times like this





I may be shy

But a reminder that I’ ve got someone special in you

Keeps me going strong, in body and spirit

I know I’ve surely found a true friend for sure in you

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
