A Gift From God - Poem by Theresa Bailey Delashmit

You were born inside me.., the sweet Lord put you here,
To guide me through all the pain, to dry my deepest tear.
Others tried to sap me dry, taking all that I could give.
But still I kept pushing on, for you, I had to live.
Others bruised my heart, others made me cry.
But they couldn't break my soul, although they sure did try.
I was crucified by satans fools, on that splintered cross of love.
But I had strength, I had you, I had God above.
I believe in heaven, God knows this is true.
So he led me down the path, the path that led to you.
I feel heaven in your arms, I feel safe, and so secure
I feel the depth of your love, honest and so pure.
I feel all your warmth, as your heart melts into mine.
Now we're joined, A gift from God, together, for all time
