I May Be Shy - Poem by Okeke Emmanuel

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
