Post Sharing my Husband's Poems

Hello all...My husband has written some wonderful and inspiring poems and I would like to share them.
He has never written before he went to prison, and now the beautiful words just flow from his wonderful heart.
Feel free to share them if you want, some may help others from ending up where our loved ones are.

My Life of Pain, Hurt, and Forgiveness





I've caused everyone in my life alot of pain, from all of this I had nothing to gain.

A loss of years which there is no return,which really causes my heart to burn.

Locked up in prison, my freedom took away, this is the price that I had to pay.

But God has given me a chance to change my life, to become a better man and make things right.

Through all this trouble I know that I have learned, to stay out of trouble which makes my heart burn.

I don't want to hurt my family anymore, all I want is to walk out this prison door.

As long as I keep my Lord Jesus Christ in my life, life will be great each day and night.

Although I have one bad scar that will be hard to heal, that is the bad way I made my family feel.

All I can do is ask Jesus Christ to restore my soul and forgive me for my bad past life.

I know that saying I'm sorry just won't do, but my actions that I take will show that I'm true.

So for everyone that I've hurt in my life, when I return home I will make things right and do away with the wrong.

For those that I've hurt, believe me when I say, I pray for forgiveness every single day.

And to my loving wife who I love very much, I just can't wait to feel your touch.

And to my little girl who I love in a special way, I can't wait to be there for you everyday.

And to my mom and dad who I have caused more and more pain, just remember that you are not to blame.

I love you all with all my heart, and Jesus Christ has given me a brand new start.

The Long Road of Addiction

Alcohol and drugs creates a long, long road, wherever the end is, most never knows.
And there is one thing that is for sure, addiction is a disease for which there is no cure.
But there is one way to turn that life around, and that is through my Lord Jesus Christ for which I have found.
But don't take too long to find this way, because if you do it may be too late.
Time in jails, prisons, and institutions, this is a very sad solution.
So when you find yourself sick and tired of this life, just pray for God to make things right.
So please don't wait till it is too late, because we are not promised another day.
Alcohol and drugs will destroy your health, addiction is a disease that will take your wealth.
Among other things it will take your pride, and then you will find yourself trying tohide.
You will find yourself running with no place to go, because drugs and alcohol creates a long, long road.

Happy Anniversary, the one I adore

Remember the day that we joined our lives,
Together as one, Husband & Wife.
We made this vow to stay together,
For the rest of our lives, forever and ever.
For better or worse, til death do us part,
There is nothing in this world that can tear us apart.
We may have hard times, and push comes to shove,
But that is ok, we have each other's love.
Happy Anniversary, you are the one I adore,
And each and every day that passes I love you more.

My Love For You

Here I sit, locked up and blue, every moment thinking of you.
You are my love, the love in my heart,
You have always been from the very start.
You are my lovethe love of my life,
You are the one I chose for my wife.
And even though I'm not at home,
My love for you still grows strong.
Every night I lie awake, not being there
with you make my heart ache.
I thank the dear Lord everyday, that He brought us
back together in a special loving way.
I know it wont be long til I have you in my arms,
To love you, protect you and keep you from harm.
Please forgive me for the mistakes I have made,
I am paying for them everyday.
Thank you, my love, for being there for me,
You are a wonderful woman and so very sweet.
And believe me, my love, when I say
When I get home, I will not let anything take me away,
All I want to do is ro be there with you and love you every single day.

Saved by the Blood

My Lord and Savior please show us the way,
Please take us under your wings, and help us through our days.

Through hardships and strife, there is one thing I know,
My Lord jesus Christ will show us the way to go.

And for all the sins we have committed in life,
I know we have forgiveness through the Blood of Jesus Christ.

Being washed by the Blood will make all things well,
But without being cleansed we are doomed for hell.

Satan can come is all shapes and forms,
But with the shield of Jesus Christ, he can do us no harm.

Just don't give up, and praise God everyday,
Keep your faith, and through God's good grace, life will be ok.

Just Keep in Mind

My loving wife, I'm so sorry I left you alone,
I would give anything to be there at home.

To be there and hold you, and comfort you at night,
To be there in the mornings when dawn breaks light.

But when you are feeling said and feeling blue,
Just remember our love is true.

Just keep in mind what the future holds,
A wonderful life together as we grow old.

Just keep in mind all the good things to come,
And that it wont be long before this hard time is done.

So do your best, darling, to keep your chin high,
And think of the most wonderful thing we have in life.

And that is a love that is so very true,
That is a love between me and you.

Post One of mine to him..

Without you

When you love someone so deep,
Without them you can not sleep.

You think of them all through the day,
And cry and scream and always pray.

Wishing they were sitting right here with you,
Heart aching, soul yearning is all you can do.

8 hours a month out of 720 just isnt enough,
Barely to hold hands, barely can touch.

No emotions or feelings can you show,
You just cant allow the world to know.

You feel like screaming, ripping down the gate,
But you have to be calm, and not get irrate.

All this time, pain and hurt, I dont understand,
I just want you back in my arms, holding my hand.

Sleeping beside me, holding me tight,
Feeling your love every day and night.

I promised to love you all of my life,
I will stand with you, beside you, always your wife.
