    Break me oh Lord!
    Break me before the gates of the world’s people
    Make me a servant unto them
    For by your Hands I have been healed
    Break me Lord, in ways that I never thought I could be
    Broken

    For I am your Humble Servant, who cry before thee
    And I thank You of your many splendid blessings
    Your are my Knight in Shining Armor
    My Moon and My Sun
    You sprinkle stars upon my face
    And pour upon my head your cup of oil
    That runneth over


    I am but your Child
    Please hear my cry my Dear Father
    For I worship your name above all others
    The Highest Mountain does not capture your breath
    The Deepest Valleys cannot compare
    To your depth

    For I ask you to place me Before the People
    I will honor and humbly serve them
    For we are as one
    Nothing that I shall ever eat
    Not the finest cuisine or delicacies
    Drowned in the most exquisite of sauces
    Can compare to Your
    Love

    Nothing that I shall ever wear
    The most luxurious and softest of fabrics
    Spun in threads of Gold
    Compare to Your
    Love

    Not the most exotic of tropical locations
    Of sparkling beaches and mesmerizing sunsets
    Not the most expensive of mansions
    That I could ever live in
    Adorned with pillars of Marble
    Can Compare to Your
    Love

    Nothing Dear God!
    That I hold in my hand is worth more
    Than my neighbors smile
    And so I will chase after it
    As I make my self a servant unto them
    For the joy that my neighbors smile brings to my heart
    Consumes my every thought
    Of how I may
    Serve them better.

    Your people and your land
    I, but a humble servant girl in your magnificent presence
    Make this vow unto Thee
    That I will serve all your people
    With the love I offer in my right hand
    And my care I hold in my left
    That those tablets never be taken from me
    For I am here to serve you Father
    And the people of
    your World.

    Thank you my special friend, for your kind words here...I am so glad that you can feel me.



    Yes....you are very right...I thought to myself today, that I would buy a small tape recorder...and keep it with me, for when the poetry blossoms I will be able to speak the words quickly, so they not be lost! Thank you $$Richie$$
    :love:

    This piece reminds me of one of my favorite Gospel songs
    with the lines "I cried unto the Lord with my heart & he heard me out of his holy hill"
