Tonight - a poem

Tonight - a poem by Kate Ladd 3/10/2011

Tonight I read the bible
Well just between me and you
It was a book of Bible stories
So I thought ‘yep that’ll do’.

You see its been a tough
Old time for me as late
So I needed a gentle push
To re-confirm my faith.

I know I’m not the only one,
So please don’t get me wrong,
Sometimes I just can’t hear the others
Who too are lost in this throng.

Although I’ve been a Christian
For many a year now
When I go to Church each Sunday
It’s like I’m only just learning how

To be a good Christian
And the true meaning of my faith.
If only I could change
Some of my many mistakes.

That’s why I need God’s guidance
To stop seeing things as blurred,
To diminish all confusion
And to hear his loving words.

I really enjoyed reading
The Bible, or book, tonight.
Now I can see things much clearer,
Like I’ve just regained my sight.

Now it seems to be getting late
Where does the time go?
God, cant you add a few more hours?
That’s what I’d like to know.

So please forgive me if I yawn and stretch
As I lay down in my bed,
Your thoughts and words and wisdom
Still floating round my head.

I love you God, and thank you
Especially for my son
I pray to you for guidance
To be the best ever mum.

Goodnight dear God and have sweet dreams,
Actually can you do that?
Either way speak to you soon

For I surely will speak back.

Every Blessing
