My Child is Not My Child

My Child is Not My Child

They look so peaceful,
Serene, innocent
These sleeping children
Of mine
But for this brief period
Of time
Them just to myself 
I cannot truly bind

Inscribed upon their 
Hearts, their very souls
Is an image of another
By my inner voice
This I am clearly told

Coming through our bodies
As mother, father
But not by us created
They have been stamped
With the face, image of another
In one family, all sisters, brothers
With only one True Father

They are God’s children
I have been given the gift
Of taking temporary care
Each day I must give them wings
So they themselves may upward lift
Their tiny bodies & souls
He commands this is my only goal!

So with each prayer 
Said by the moon’s waning light
I must release them 
With a heavy sigh
Upward thru the skies
Into the all-loving hands of 
Our Truest Father’s Power & Might!

New Eden

New Eden

With a trumpet’s blast
Angelic wings will beat
To agitate, despoil the air 
Their voices shout
It will come about
With lightning’s speed

This new Eden 
Glorious, magnificent
Will descend
The old order will 
Completely end
New heavens, new earth,
A new Jerusalem

My feet will trod
Upon a newborn sod
New city with streets
Of fine-spun gold
No more will man
To sin be sold
On street corners so cheaply

Everything seen now
Is only shadow, temporary
Out of necessity

All man’s creations
Will be done away with
So God’s New Earth, 
New Heavens 
At last may begin

Joy, peace, love
Of these things 
There will be no end
Eternal God will reign

Death, tears, pain
Will all be gone
Praise to God, Christ
Will be forever’s song

So do not miss 
Reunion with
Your Creator
Do not deny 
His Touch,
His infinity’s kiss
Take His hand now
So you and I may stay,
Live in Glory’s new day,
Together, Forever!!
