LEAN ON ME (Poem #195)

I wrote a poem for my daughter and new son-in-law and read it at their wedding reception in 1997. People have been encouraging me ever since. I try to write up-beat and happy poetry. My poetry has been in many anthologies, newspapers, church bulletins,etc. I won a small contest once. I self-publish…

You can lean on Me while you are down.
 My arms will reach out so wide to surround.

 Hold on as long as it shall last
 While your eyes on the ground are so cast.

 And soon within you a warmth will flow
 As you reach up for that heavenly glow

 That comes through the Lord you see
 As you now can give thanks for being set free.
