Not a Perfect Friend

Not looking for
A perfect friend
I rather one
That’s genuine

Of life to share
So humbly
A broken soul
That’s just like me

To listen first
With open ear
No judgement found
A safe place here

In taking turns
Receive and give
Our cross to share
This life to live

And when we don’t
Know the way
We turn to God
Together, pray

A Friend of the Mist

Of advancing years
Morning prayers to subsist
I’ve come to be
A friend of the mist

Of water and field
Of dwelling to drift
From earth unto heaven
Of being to lift

A lesson of soul
Of a time to be
Of one to let go
When the Lord calls me

A lesson of practice
Of faith here to see
One of a moment
Or eternity

Friend of the Choosing

Important our choices
A thought to extend
One of great value
Is choosing our friends

In shaping our view
Of character mold
One of dependence
Of values behold

Advice of receiving
Of sharing the way
A friend of the choosing
My Jesus today

I hope that some day
As friends often do
That I’ll grow to be
To look just like You

Friend in Silence

Bless me a friend
So trusting to see
That we can rest in
Just silence to be

No word of filling
In an unspoken prayer
Through language of soul
Of solitude share

Perhaps in a sunset
Mountains majesty
Under starlight
Or waves of the sea

Spirits connection
Through chord of the three
A beautiful moment
Of intimacy

Silence be our Friend

In this noisy world
A gift to us You send
May we be of seeking
Let silence be our friend

In time of practice be
We will come to know
Moments of familiar
Of Your Presence, show

Quieting the mind
Surrender be our choice
As truth is spoken clear
Turn to the inner voice

Carried in the soul
A buffering of peace
Easy of the dwelling
Of silence to release

Friend of Heaven

And now you meet
Your friend of prayer
In joys embrace
Through all the years

The mystery
Becomes so clear
The promise true
In faith we share

And all along
You prayed sincere
Rejoiced as one
And shed some tears

In valley deep
You did appear
Through Spirits way
Their voice you’d hear

Through one love
Our soul endear
In joy we’ll be
Eternal here

Encounter of a Friend

Entering Your house
To pray for Spirit, send
Before I even asked
I came across a friend

Standing in Your Presence
We shared a word or two
Mixed in conversation
Was the Word of You

Coming to a crossroad
Of his life, he shared
Speaking of Your plan
How he’s arrived prepared

Guided by Your Spirit
In opening of door
As child of Your kingdom
Blessings You’ve outpoured

Sent with flame inspired
In this heart of mine
Two souls in your presence
Binding of divine
