Cover me

You cover me
With bundles of joy
Wrapped up in
Tiny bubbles
Each one bursts open
When I think of you
Kisses me on my face
Then stretches my mouth
Over my teeth
Into full smiles
They linger
In no hurry to leave
Pure delight
The richest pleasure
Of knowing you.

Lies

When you live a lie
You lie exposed
As an open target
One lie covers up the next
It’s like you shot yourself in the foot
Then the other foot
Now your trying
To walk straight
But there’s a trail
Of your life
That’s draining out
Your walk is crooked
On a bent path
You’re on the run
Chased down by your lies
With no legs to run on
The final outcome
Of this madness
Is the greatest deception
Of all
To call the lie
The truth
And the truth
A lie
What a nightmare
That would be
Only the truth
Can break you free
You must know the truth
Then the truth
Will set you free.

Loves not blind

They say that love is blind
Not the kind I know
The love I know
Is pure White light
It blazes
It penetrates
It liberates
It shines into every dark place
Then lights it up so bright
Yet it’s gracious and kind
Tender in mercy
Always lifting me up
Forgiving
Holding nothing against me
Inviting me to drink of freedoms cup
This freedom
Is loves gift
Of eternal life
Loves light of truth
That causes my heart
To beat in unison
My step to be as one
One with loves giver
Jesus light of the world
So love is not blind
For He opened my eyes to see.

Intoxicated

So quickly you sweep me off my feet
So quickly you dance around my heart
Singing songs
Pure as Angels breath
On a frosty mountain sky
Oh the blues and greens
All the rich and bright
Colours of dawn
You set like sun
Wrapped around
My inner man
Then tighten loves hold
Around my fragile soul
Always gazing
Longing with eternal rays
Brighter than
All galaxies suns
Richer than
The finest moons
I drink of you
And I am
Intoxicated
With your love.

Mind your mind

You’re stumbling over your head
Mind your mind
It trips you up
Lays you down
Turns you around
Face the ground
Lay down
Bring your mind
Offer it
Sacrifice it
On the alter of faith
Believe His mind
He will mind your step
Keep you upright not uptight
Clear headed in a murky world.

Beholding You

Look around
What do you see
Extraordinary beauty
Exquisite splendour
Drawing me into you
I see you
I behold you
And I am in awe
Awe of who you are
Awe of what you’ve done
Your ways
Reflect who you are
Who you are
Is altogether beautiful
Magnificent
Glorious
In all your perfection
Oh Lord
How I desire you
Delight in you
Love you
Love your presence
Seek your face
Upheld by your grace
My soul is still
Quietened like a weaned child
Like a weaned child
At his mothers breast
I am content
Beholding you.

I am Listening

You hear because you are listening
Patiently longing with affection
You listen because you care
You care because you love
Oh how you love!
You love more than I know life itself
You live always in love because you are love
So now my ears are open to hear you
Speak Lord
I am listening
