I Stay Available


I stay available with kept faith,
To do whatever it takes...
With a facing opposition,
And conditioned to submit...
Without doubting a decision I've made,
To quit.

I don't intend to be perfect.
I just want to stay alert.
I am not completely fearless at all.
But I don't focus on that which might leave me hurt.

I stay,
Available...
And obedient in that way.
Everyday not a thought do I keep,
Something unknown may cause me to weep.

I stay available with kept faith,
To do whatever it takes...
With a facing opposition,
And conditioned to submit...
Without doubting a decision I've made,
To quit.


I stay available,
To receive.
I stay available,
To give or get.
I am available with belief,
Faith within kept delivers peace...
Of mind.

I stay available,
To receive.
I stay available,
To give or get.
I am available with belief,
Faith within kept delivers peace...
Of mind.

Faith within kept delivers peace to me,
All the time.
Whenever I need fears released.
Faith within kept frees me to be,
More of who I am 'and' much defined.

I stay available,
To receive.
I stay available,
To give or get.
I am available with belief,
Faith within kept frees me to be,
More of who I am 'and' much defined.

I stay available.
Not to quibble,
Argue or object.
I stay available,
With a faith...
All my steps will be blessed,
If I...
Stay available.

And if I....
Stay available,
All my steps will be blessed.
If I....
Stay available,
All my steps will be blessed.
Just if I...
Stay available.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
