Dei Gratia (By The Grace Of God)


When my ways have errs,
and my worlds in despair.
Dei Gratia, He'll show me He cares.

When I'm left in dismay,
and it's hard to see another day.
Dei Gratia, He'll show me the way.

When I show that I'm weak,
and thing may seem bleak.
Dei Gratia, He'll show me the peak.

When I return to the loam.
This earthly world I won't roam.
Dei Gratia, I pray He calls me home.

    It's not easy to shift from funny to serious, but, you do it easily with your poems. You are born to be a poet. Muy bien! (Report) Reply

When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
