NAKED - I come  


Naked I come to You, my God, my all

Without the trappings of power and might

You who see deep down into my soul, the very heart of me

You who fashioned me, made every cell and every part of me

You know the inner me, right from the very start of time.

Take Thou these arms, these legs to work for Thee.

Take these eyes, let them see only the good in others.

Take these ears, let them be focused on hearing good and pure words.

Let the words fall from these lips for Your glorification.

Renew my strength each day, to go about each human task.

Help me appreciate my fellowmen and practice diversity to the end.

From the archives this came and remains the same. No changes made.

He is who I turn to when everyone else abandons me. He is the only one I can trust. It is believing this that keeps me going!

Mary, I come  with  To say how sorry I am to have missed your  comments. Have to put it down to the time when my Laptop was telling me I can't get on site but I would have thought that missing a few would be shown. It is in going over nearly 300 poems on here to spot missed comments that I found so far 2 of yours. Have to make it up to you somehow. Bless you for being so generous with 'gifts"

Bare is the soul
who comes to this place, bare is the soul who returns.
I adore this piece you've so eloquently penned, Kitty.. it serves to remind us of who and what we really are. All that sits between birth and passing is simply experience, life energy to be directed for the good of all. Those who step away from the pathway are those experiencing a different learning curve. One that will ultimately bring them full circle.. in the fullness of time.
From God, Of God.. and Back to God. What could be more beautiful?
Many thanks for sharing this thought-provoking piece with us Kitty.
Blessings and Peace, Maelona (Mandy) x

Thanks Mandy for sharing these sentiments. This came from same thoughts of going full circle. I was on a balcony looking towards a church that my second daughter was christened in. the thought suddenly came and I was inspired. Blessings to you my friend!

I love this poem/prayer
so amazing ..and hits home, what are we with out belongings or clothing ..we are bare no where to hide , as God sees us for who we are .. I love this..

This is one of my favourites too. Oh Jem you are so generous. I really do appreciate your visits and kind reviews. Inspires me to keep writing even if I am a little tied up with that short story at the moment. I have put this one in my recently released book. 'Reflections Of A Caring Woman"

A beautiful letter
To the Lord of all creation. What are we indeed, without our "finery?" The person inside the person is the most important part of being a person!

I agree with your statement ' The person inside the person is who matters'
Thanks for a lovely review, for the very generous off of points and of course those happy on page!

An excellent write Kitty.
Your vision lifts us to the heights of Heaven itself, with such soft and inspirational wording. Your prayer to the Lord of all lifts the heart and the Soul. Once again you truly excel in your write lifting us to the heights of glory. Your prayer shall most graciously be answered Kitty. Walk in the light and may his countenance ever shine upon you. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

Excellent Evocation!
Kit ... what a wonderful prayer to GOD ! ... I loved the entreaty of love that shines thru in this ... and the sincerity of commitment composed within it ... and it beams with the trust of a child, speaking to their Father, with the knowledge that He has everything that is needed and wants to give it to them ... and is in control of whatever will be ... Your joy of GOD, shines thru in this one, Kitty ... Your Poet Pal, MoonBee

Without Him I am nothing! Thank you for a lovely review Moonie! Glad you could visit this page. Blessings

I don't believe in god, but this is a truly beautiful poem. There is nothing else to say except that the message in here is so lovely, so true and so pure.... I'm reading this to my mum who DOES believe in god ha

Thanks for your visit and frank comments. I too am a mum with children I raised to be their own persons. Your mum I am sure will understand where I am coming from. May your life be fruitful.
