Can I Write

Updated on October 8, 2010

Can I write me a story about a birthday gone right?

Can I write me a poem about a shiver in the night?

These things are more common,

Than minds can perceive.

Yet they hold a deep meaning

Can you now not hear?

Can I write me a story about a wedding in the fall?

Can I write me a poem about the wind and its call?

The measure of life

In a humans deep soul

Has the markings of time

That will never let go.

Can I write me a story about a death in a day?

Can I write me a poem about a path in life’s way?

The heart beats with mercy

For the soul that is lost

But the spirit rejoices

At a God that is just.

      Thank you all. coffeesnob, dad and Moulik Mistry for your encouragement...and in all "our" writing, one thing I believe is paramount is...glorifying Father...respecting Him and His Word always...

      Bless you all
