Thank You Lord

You Lord, allow me to rise
From a sinking hole
That I fail to see
You cover me with your
Love—beauty, you were
always there with me
Even when I resist to
Follow the path you set
For me—you Lord
Cover me with your shield
And forgave me
How can I not weep?
For you, speak your name
How can I not smile?
When I see your sun
Shining on me
You Lord cover me with
Your never-ending grace
And I just want to say
Thank you for today!

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
