God Bless You - Poem by Adrienne Clark Strachn

What do you mean when you say
God Bless You?
Do you mean, have a nice day
bless you in your trials and tribulations.
What do you mean when you say
God Bless You?
Should I trust your sincerity and feel words of comfort
What do you mean when you say
God Bless You?
Are those words for my family
are you praying for my sanity
there are all kinds of people in this world
are you praying for my health
the home I live in, my spiritual walk with God.
See, God is blessing me anyhow
even if he was dissappointed in me today
he would forgive me if i prayed and confessed
But would you?
If i raised my voice at you, ignored you today
aggravated you to no end
would you forgive me?
When you say God Bless you,
am i still one of your favorite people
do you love, respect me like a part of your family,
will you comfort me in my time of need,
ask me if I feeling well today?
God Bless You
God Bless You,
three very strong words
should we be closer?
using these words wisely and carefully
I say God Bless You too.
