Purpose To Life


dear lord! you know that i don't often pray.
but! i have so much to say.
i thank you for all that you have done for me.
that you have set my heart free.

you give a purpose in this life-and a desire to help others.
friend, family, sister and brothers.
help me to search my own heart and to know what
i must do. to get even closer to you.

it seems that when we sit and write
everything is in plain sight.
we can put in words-what people want to hear
if you are willing to share.

all your dreams, hopes and prayers
that can take you to a place beyond compare.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
