Biography of Greg Oosterhouse
I started writing after a wedding reception inspired me greatly. I started writing poetry in February of 2004, just before my 28th birthday. Poetry has become my voice, I tell it like it is when I write. I proclaim myself to be a soapbox preacher because of that. I write of the Lord, and of love. Those are my two main subjects.
Greg Oosterhouse Poems
It is a gift so grand.
It is a gift so great,
It will not fit in my hand.
You are the smile on my face.
Even though you're far away, you are oh, so near.
I'm surrounded by reflections of your grace.
And I look forward to greetings from ones I hold dear.
Will their cards make me laugh, or shed a tear?
It is because of that, that I look forward to every year.
A time to celebrate Jesus' birth.
A time that most hold dear,
A gift for all people of this earth.
All I can feel is love!
All I can do
Is give thanks to You
'I Thank You, Oh My God'
I thank You, oh my God,
With heart and hand and pen strokes.
This gift You gave to me,
I use it not to tell jokes.
I write of You above,
How You have blessed me so.
I pray that this gift lasts,
As onward now I go.
