A Gift From God

I am a wish, a prayer, from mortal lips
That reached heaven and touched God‘s fingertips
And returned to earth wrapped in flesh and blood
A gift from God‘s unconditional love

So love and cherish me as God does you
And guide and teach me well in all I do
And through the years a garden we will grow
Filled with the fragrant beautyof the rose

And on the day I reach maturity
And feel the need like leaves to leave the tree
To show the world the colours that are me
Rejoice in all the beauty that you se

For I am your child, the gift that God gave
No more that a wish and a prayer away

Elaine C. George

Not to be confused with other poets by the name of Elaine George, I am Elaine Cecelia George, born on the 27th day of November in the year 1946 in the city of Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.   (Violin, Snowflake, A Winter Rose, From my Porch, The Love of a Gentleman, Where the Heart Resides, One Regret, The Tide of Time, and the Promise of Spring), have been published in various books and magazines and school books.  Some are being used as teaching tools for poetry classes offered on websites, most without my permission, nonetheless, I am honoured. One  poetry website has given credit to another Elaine George from England for my personification poem, 'SNOWFLAKE.  I have asked them several times to correct this, but it still remains unchanged. Since 2006, in addition to my books of poetry, I have had several short stories and A book entitled, 'Earthbound Angels made of Stone, A epic story written by me in a collaboration with The Canadian Photographer, Darren Creighton. I am currently writing a historical fiction thriller entitled, Out of the Darkness. I hope to have it completed before the year end. more…
