Words From The Heart

As I stood there looking
Out the back door
I saw them from afar

The two steeples
Shining brightly
Within the darkness of the night

Standing tall against the sky
Representing so much
Offering warmth and love
To the catching eye

I took a few moments
To ponder my life
Where the rollercoaster ride of life
Has taken me

Quite the ride
It has been
Many ups and downs within

Since meeting you
My life has been shining brightly
Just as those steeples do

Shining bright
With love and happiness
Laughter and sharing

One can look back
And ask
Why did it take so long?
Why was there so many years
Of suffering and longing

As we have learned in life
One must go through
Trials and tribulations
One must have faith
That better days are ahead



If one’s eyes are focused
Strongly on the cross
A path will be shown
A path of a life journey

Many a night was
Spent on bended knee
Pouring my heart out
To the one above

A day came that you came
Into my life
A prayer that was answered
A prayer that has brought so
Much ecstasy into my life

I look forward
To many moments with you
Moments of tenderness
Moments of sharing
Moments of caring
Moments of love

But most of all
The moments spent
Together in prayer

Prayers that are sent
To the one above
To show us the path
The path of the new journey

A journey shared by two
Two that know
With faith and love
Anything is possible

It is through Christ
That we are strengthened
Strengthened no matter
What may happen
Today, tomorrow
And into the future too.
