Treasure Island

Dennis Field

(22-01-1947 / Croydon England)

Thanks to God

Oh God shine your light on me,
for I am a sinner you see,
most times I am in the dark,
no light to be seen,
I am lost in this world,
and I do not want to be.

For you are all the power,
to give us your light,
for your love for us,
you have said is everlasting,
so help us through these days,
and change the way we are,
so we can see what is to be.

We give you thanks,
to the one on high,
never to be shy to say why,
for he knows what's in our hearts,
so ask for his forgiveness,
as he hears all your prays,
Thank you God.

    Fight for the things those have been forgotten in our universe.
    fight for the light
    This has been proved for me that God Always forgives us, if we want so
    we give thanks to our God because of the smiles that he sends for us
    still we promise and continue our (perhaps) dirty actions, but again, he is there, waiting for our calling.
    i embrace this work with my whole existence because it's really, really nice
    well written Dennis, very nice (Report) Reply

    If we admit that we are sinners and are genuinely sorry for our actions, God the all forgiving one will look upon us with kindness! A poem rich in sincerity and a desire for godly grace! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
