He Is My Lion



He Is My Lion
He is my lion; He is my King. He is the world and everything;
He can roar within my soul as He gives me voice to sing.
He has made me majestic in my old, crippled walk;
He is my power of thought that shapes my words when I talk.

He is the blood that flows freely through my veins;
He is my Savior when I speak so fondly of His name.
He is the loving heart who holds my troubles in His hand;
He is the glory and the word, as the Bible tells all man.

He is the creator of wolves howling in the night;
He is the wise owl that gives me vision and sight.
He is the watch dog that protects as I obey;
He is the cure that respects all others when I pray.

He brings April showers and light winds;
He forgives me of all my earthly sins.
He has given me my soul and the love of my wife;
He is everything to me, as he has given me my life.

IntroductionForgotten are the times the tick of a clock once chimed sobering sounds that caressed my hearts nightly dreams. As I awaken to the touch of light that burns upon a candles wick flickering my words for all to see. This drives my thoughts through the darkest of nights of loneliness that renders my quill upon parchment with ink that dances to minds and souls.Now I hear the screeching of my heart when the blue horizon covers the orb of emptiness.Within the shelter of my mind with little, purpose other than my words that keep me sane. These are my new poems I have written in the quiet of my night, forever wished away in a writer’s pain. As I strive to write that perfect poem that, my soul desperately seeks. Then and only then can my words rest upon a sleep. more…
