An Empty Place
God looked around his Garden
and found an empty place –
He then looked down upon his earth
and saw your loving face.
He put his arms around you
and lifted you to rest –
His Garden must be beautiful
he always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
he knew you were in pain –
And knew that you would never
get well on earth again.
He saw your path was difficult
he closed you tired eyes –
He whispered to you “Peace be Thine”
and gave you wings to fly.
When we saw you sleeping
so calm and free of pain –
I wouldn’t wish you back
to earth to suffer once again.
You’ve left us precious memories
your love will be our guide –
You live on through your children
you’re always by our side.
It broke our hearts to lose you
but you did not go alone –
For part of us went with you
on the day God called you home.
‘Born Asleep‘ .. such a heartfelt phrase
touches me to the core –
The broken cries of a Mother’s heart
when it just can’t take anymore.
I open my heart, one Mom to another
so you never lose your hope –
That although it gets no easier
I promise, you’ll learn to cope.
Remember your Angel is sleeping
in a world much kinder than ours –
And will always be there to hold your hand
even in your darkest hours.
My own little Angel will keep an eye
and play with yours in their park –
But you must find your love and strength
and feed your own little spark.
You’ll never be alone my friend
I will always understand –
If the tides loom up to swallow you
just reach out and grab my hand.
Hello, My Name Is DRUGS
(A very powerful poem about DRUGS!)
I destroy homes, tear families apart,
take your children, and that’s just the start.
I’m more costly than diamonds, more costly than gold,
the sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.
And if you need me, remember I’m easily found,
I live all around you, in schools and in town.
I live with the rich, I live with the poor,
I live down the street, and maybe next door.
My power is awesome; try me you’ll see,
but if you do, you may NEVER break free.
Just try me once and I might let you go,
but try me twice, and I’ll own your soul.
When I possess you, you’ll steal and you’ll lie.
You do what you have to just to get high.
The crimes you’ll commit, for my narcotic charms
will be worth the pleasure you’ll feel in your arms.
You’ll lie to your mother; you’ll steal from your dad
When you see their tears, you should feel sad.
But you’ll forget your morals and how you were raised,
I’ll be your conscience, I’ll teach you my ways.
I take kids from parents, and parents from kids,
I turn people from god, and separate friends.
I’ll take everything from you, your looks and your pride,
I’ll be with you always, right by your side.
You’ll give up everything… your family, your home…
your friends, your money, then you’ll be alone.
I’ll take and take, till you have nothing more to give.
When I’m finished with you you’ll be lucky to live.
If you try me be warned this is no game.
If given the chance, I’ll drive you insane.
I’ll ravish your body; I’ll control your mind.
I’ll own you completely; your soul will be mine.
The nightmares I’ll give you while lying in bed,
the voices you’ll hear from inside your head,
the sweats, the shakes, the visions you’ll see;
I want you to know, these are all gifts from me.
But then it’s too late, and you’ll know in your heart,
that you are mine, and we shall not part.
You’ll regret that you tried me, they always do,
but you came to me, not I to you.
You knew this would happen. Many times you were told,
but you challenged my power, and chose to be bold.
You could have said no, and just walked away,
If you could live that day over, now what would you say?
I’ll be your master; you will be my slave,
I’ll even go with you, when you go to your grave.
Now that you have met me , what will you do?
Will you try me or not? Its all up to you.
I can bring you more misery than words can tell.
Come take my hand, I’ll take you to hell!
