On The Other Side.

GooglePics

There are people on the other side,
People who faces had,
Who to families belonged,
But who burn alone in a fire,
Tormented in eternal flames,
Unquenchable coals that fume.

These people once had lives,
They held on to believes,
They were husbands and wives,
See how sons visit their graves,
Daughters kiss photo frames,
Desiring to have one more chance,
To hold them once,
To hear their voice.

There are people on the other side,
And there are people on this side,
Now people on the other side weep,
Grievous not so much for selves,
But for us, people on this side.
Picture them with marred faces,
With dripping torn skins,
Reaching out with skinned arms,
Signalling us to downwards look.

Like Lazurus and the rich man,
They hold tales from earth,
They tried sending smoke signals,
From coals with flames that fume,
The crust could not clear a way,
Trying once and again,
But we can’t see it.

We people on this side,
Live too loud to listen,
We want better every time,
So we become daring,
We keep breaking rules,
As for Lazurus and the rich man,
Their’s is not a bestseller.

I Lose You Too Soon.

Just when I start to get excited,
I lose you all over again,
So when I’m feeling a little bubble of joy,
Rising up through my aorta,
I want to burst it right away,
Cause I don’t want to lose you just yet,
So I’d rather sacrifice this ecstasy,
For a high spirited me.

I NEED YOU.

I want you Lord,
To be near me,
I know you art near,
If only that’d sink in me.

I want to know,
Daily to be led by you,
You are the way,
I need you.

There are days like this,
When I’m not sure if I’m walking with Him,
Your sent helper – the Holy Spirit,
But I keep trusting that He’s in me.

I need you Lord,
To remind me what’s important,
It looks like I’ve been all about trusting you,
I have slumbered at your feet.

I want to know,
If I did become comfortable,
Cause I’m not sure what I’m doing,
In case I’m asleep, startle me.

I want you Lord,
More than I want a friend,
More than I desire a human,
I desire you evermore.

I am here singing songs to you,
Songs about you,
Songs you put in hearts of saints,
But this too doesn’t satisfy, only you.

I desire you Lord,
Jesus if you could speak,
Do it like you always do, Lord,
Let me know what’s required of me.

Jesus I am weak,
Please be strength to me,
Jesus I am but a man,
A shadow in a campfire.

I want you Lord,
Speaking every moment,
For this reason I’m toning down,
So I can hear your messages.

Surely you are not far from me,
You are showing me the way,
Help me see and comprehend,
Open my heart and my mind.

I will be here Lord,
Reading your Word and listening,
Don’t leave me I plead,
I’m a stubborn one but please stay.
