A Child’s Prayer

Oh light where did your splendid sparkle go
To touch the heaven that I know
Where I visit God and sit upon His lap
I talk with Jesus, lay upon a lion, and take a nap
Joyful colors make a rainbow of love that can dance
Angel wings soar, and fragrance doth enhance
The brilliance of the moment in the sky
I weep with love for You, and I will try
Bending, before you Lord, to say to You
While stammering within my own heart,
I hear Your words; “I know you do โ€“
and my child
I love you too!”

written by Joni – feeling grateful for all my WordPress friends, sleep tight, and don’t let those bed bugs bite – don’t forget to say your prayers – good night, love you all

    1. One of the characters in my book is a wise lion who the two main characters sleep on. I love that we will be able to talk to animals in โ€œThe New Jerusalemโ€ or heaven. Thank you Rhen. Love ๐Ÿ’• Joni

    1. Oh thank you, your comment made me tear up. I prayed before I wrote this poem and asked God to send me words that would comfort someone. I am so glad you could relate to this. We are especially blessed to be covered by His blanket right now. Have a truly blessed week. Love and hugs Joni ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบโค๏ธ

      1. You are great Joni. You touch people’s hearts every time you write. This is what it matters most. I am in love with your writings sweetheart.
        I really hope you are having a fabulous evening. I feel like we did not “speak” in a while. I guess I miss you.

      2. Oh thank you my dearest. I miss you too. I get so excited to see your post. I thought you might be very busy with finishing with your students. I also know this was a sad and difficult time for you giving the lack of personal contact with them before graduation. I will write tomorrow I had some news I wanted to share. I hope that is ok. I look forward to writing then. Sleep well my dear friend. Love and hugs to you Button from honeybun

  1. If you are mine,
    then am I am yours?

    If you are the breeze I stand in
    when I am simply cold,
    then am I the taste of your breath now?

    If you are the hands that hold me
    when I am simply scared,
    then am I what runs to your arms?

    If you are the tide that feeds me
    when I am simply lost,
    then am I the light on your shore?

    If you are simply mine,
    then am I simply yours?

      1. Oh that is very kind. It is a blessing that poetry is making a comeback finally. I love poetry but it hasnโ€™t been as popular as it was at one time. Thank you so much for reading and commenting Anna I really appreciate it. Have a truly blessed day. Love ๐Ÿ’• Joni
