LONLINESS


The absence of love . . . . .
A world of desolate longing
Wishing for a tender touch
A sweet caress
A lingering kiss
But waking up alone
No arms to hold you,
No shoulder to console you
Just your own reflection in the mirror
And the sadness in your eyes.


~Victoria Stewart




FADED ROSE


Soft silky petals,
Velvety and red,
Stems that prick the
Unsuspecting finger,
A token of love
Not meant to last
Soon to be a thing
Of the past.
Pressed within yellowed pages
Of a book never read,
Fragile and browned and dead.


~Victoria Stewart




TIMELESS


Sands of time
Slipping away
World revolves
Night to day
Yesterday gone,
Today soon past,
Tomorrow just a dream.


~Victoria Stewart




CHRISTIAN'S PRAYER

If I have lightened someones load,
And made the path a little straighter
For a weary soul to trod,
If I've somehow, by Faith and Love,
Lead some soul to God,
If I have lifted someone1s burden
Just by a loving smile,
If I have helped one saddened soul
Forget their trials awhile,
If I have, by some kindly deed,
A smile, a nod, a word of praise,
Made someone happy today,
If I have made one person smile
Or lifted up their spirits
For just a little while,
If through God's grace of Love and Faith,
I've lived my life with God,
Then the road of life
I have traveled
must have been well trod.

SHINE ON

In the times my heart's
Full of sorrow,
And it seems there's no hope
For tomorrow,
I turn my eyes toward the Lord
And he lifts up my soul,
And the sunshine in my life
Shines again.
Shine on, shine on
You're the beacon in my life, Lord
Shine on,
Lift me up to the sky
Send my soul on wingless flight,
And the sunshine in my life
Shines again.
When my world has crashed
Around my feet,
And it seems I can't go on,
I turn my eyes toward the Lord
And he lifts up my soul,
And the sunshine in my life shines again.
Shine on, shine on
You're the beacon in my life Lord
Shine on,
Lift me up to the sky,
Send my soul on wingless flight
And the sunshine in my life shines again.
