Appreciatin' What Is Ours
Author: Terrie*


life by candle light
darkness through the night
helped us gather our thoughts

to appreciate what is ours
even though we so often keep stored
deep within our hearts

into the quietness
where you cain focus
a place that is as close as your heart

where God exist the most
in the stillness
you cain hear him speak

you cain see your life
flashin' before your eyes
where you've been
what you've seen

and how far life will take you

you are awaken
of what you may lose
hard to believe
but we all take
many things in life for granted

we both felt the same surge
we both felt the same weakness
that was taken away
and the same strength
that was replaced

as our hearts and souls
connected and embraced

i felt the tear drop
that came from his eye
as he felt
the touch
of my heart breakin

we both felt the calmness
within our heart's
when the soothin' touch
of God's whisper

asked us to confess all, and be new
we confessed
our heart and soul to our Lord

we asked for his forgiveness
in all error of our ways
as we both battle
the temptations placed in our path

we saw the big wooden cross

we both felt the same
as we confessed
what we honor
and what we are blessed with

as soon as the retreat was over

we both ended up by the phone booth
both had the same thought in our hearts
we have two children
stayin' w/their God Gran'ma
we both embraced in silence

we are so blessed
and how we miss them so much
both had the same thought

we called them and said
i love you daughter !!
i love you son!!
turn to each other and said
i love you too!!

we confess with tears
we are sooo Blessed

------- Author's Notes -------

(old write) precious moment after the last retreat, my husband and i attended, before he became ill, the first time .I still feel Blessed and appreciate all three of them, for touchin' and becomin' a part of my life.
