Do You Believe You Can Be, Forgiven and Free?

All of creation sings,
great and small.
The rocks cry out,
grace and mercy!
Every voice will shout,
love and joy!

When the end begins,
darkness and evil.
Casts it deathly pall,
hate and fear.
In the midst of,
pain and suffering

Our faith grows with,
peace and hope.
When all of creation,
believes and sees.
All is made right,
forgiven and free.

Forgiven and Free

Lingering, On the Edge of Forever

Haunting
Emerald eyes
Seductive
Ruby lips
A look, A smile
A moment
We were left
Lingering,
On the edge of forever

Holding on
Heartbeats
Holding in
Breathless
A glance, A chance
A moment
We lived there
Lingering,
On the edge of forever

Blank
Lifeless eyes
Cold
Blue lips
A stare, A vacancy
A moment
That captured life
Lingering,
On the edge of forever

For Love
Gratitude
From Grace
Blessed
A hope, A mercy
A light
Shines on us
Lingering,
On the edge of forever

Quiet Whispers

“Good Friday Sunset”     Maleko ©2013

time alone ~ with God ~ solitude covers

sins forgiven ~ silent grace

quiet whispers ~ He speaks ~ of promises

hopes held ~ love wins

Maleko ©2013

My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him.

~Psalm 62:5
