Gerry Legister Poems
Courage sometimes is the quietest voice That roars loudest from within, Making faith a distinctive choice And compelling motivation to try again.
Spring is here Again
Spring is here again taking a shower in the trees Bathing the wind that brings again spring cleaning, Wash the newly formed lawns and greener leaves, Of April; wet days soak deeper in sprinkling spring.
Love is precious
Perfect love cast out fear, Love is in the eyes of a dear friend, Love is found transformed in the air, True love has no boundaries to end.
In heaven with you
I’m in heaven with you, Spirited away on a burning sphere, Inside of me are the new Imprints of this adventure.
Dancing with the stars
Airy tune plays the starry notes we adore Wind generate the breathe of vibrancy found, A beat tapping polite crescendo upon the floor, Judges joined in the finale of encore sound.
Ashes in the wind
The wound will leave your heart Lost in the shadows again, Ashes in the wind; tearing it apart Death comes with so much pain.
Sonnet about tap dancing
An airy tune play flavors we adore Generate the breathe of vibrant sound, Tap politely crescendo shoes on the floor Dance stance move lightly off the ground.
The Rose in the churchyard
Did you see the Roses that grew and made changes to the church yard? Inside the providence of Gods law they painted the imprints of his word.
You make me feel special
Under Your spell make me feel special, Share my doubts, remove all my fears When you smile I fall under your spell, You wipe away so many of my tears.
Have faith in God
I would like to have a theory of perception, But seeing is easier for me to believe, The unknown phenomena visiting my mind, Preoccupied with thoughts conceive.
When we see summer changes The clothes we wear quickly disappear, And the next season rearranges Clouds more fastidious in the atmosphere.
When Love Is Not Enough
When in this land you have given your all, And not think twice when someone needs forgiven, Love can cover the hurt every time you fall, But bruises will be hidden beneath the vale of sin.
You may dismiss me during the fast Moving performances taking place, Pay more attention to costume and cast A spell over those sitting in the audience.
Love not too much by many, Edible flavor found in Sushi, Press into ball shape Varity, Smelled raw like the sea.

Courage sometimes is the quietest voice
That roars loudest from within,
Making faith a distinctive choice
And compelling motivation to try again.
When obstacles invariably come your way,
Into every direction that you have turned,
A thousand misery comes in a friendlier display
To take away the strength that you have gained.
Faith stands strong like a colossal wall of courage,
Ready to do the things that you could not do.
Bold in confidence with a conquering message,
Making difficult boundaries appeared new.
You can go on overcoming ...
