The Heart’s Condition (poem by me)

High school sweetheart, how hard I fell for you—
thanks to the red long stem roses you sent,
and promises of forever to be true,
I surrendered my heart—one hundred percent,
How hard it was to hear you found someone new,
And the breakup stirred an inner torment,
Men and women so often tear apart,
but the pain is worse on an unguarded heart.

Above everything else guard your heart, because from it flow the springs of life. —Proverbs 4:23

Come Near (poem by me)

Lord, You said You would never leave
or forsake Your beloved any day
so Your promise leads me to believe
I am the one who has gone astray.

How did I cause You to sorrow and grieve?
In what way did I knowingly disobey?
There is nothing I can conceive
That should cause my soul to betray.

For You are living water to my soul,
Help me to press onward to the goal.

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 3:14
