A Prayer

Poem By Vallerie Lobell

Help me hold on Lord,
Down on my knees,
Each day I sink lower,
Help me up, please,

Hear the 'groanings of my heart',
'Read my kidneys ' too,
Can't hold on by myself,
I really need You,

I want to dig a deep hole,
And lay down with the others,
More tired I've never been,
Miss my daughter, son, and mother,

I love those still with me,
But I do them no good,
How can I go on?
Help me if You would?

Don't want to be seen,
So depressed and downhearted,
Try to be the 'industrious' one,
Feel defeated before I have started,

So I come to You now,
In the name of Your son,
Will be withered away,
Before day is done,

So as David once asked,
For a 'new spirit within',
With a 'steadfast heart',
Help me see another day begin,

My Dearest Love

Why do I feel the way I do?
What makes this love so fresh and new?
Had I never felt this way before?
Ever dreamed what Fate held in store?

I just started putting poems? on the site,
I check first thing in the morning, last thing at night,
To see if anybody has been touched or made to smile,
Or in my shoes has walked that mile,

Beckon To Me

Beckon to me once more,
And awaken my drowsy heart,
For it will take some tender urgings,
We're too far and too long apart,

Who Is This One?

Who is this one who calls my name?
And always sets my soul aflame,
Who's this one I can't forget?
I've loved since the day we met?

Small Tribute To Crocodile Man

Australia Zoo must be reeling,
I myself overcome with feeling,
You were so fearless and brave,
All the animals you would save,
