May Your April March On

May your April march on one step at a time

with flowers that bloom and poems that rhyme

The sun warms you more a bit more each day

that’s just how God planned it what more can I say

The trees that looked dead now bloom and turn green

their pollen comes forth and causes your sneeze

The mud your dear children wear home on their clothes

exactly how it got there nobody knows

The siren that blows with approaching dark clouds

is trying to save you not simply be loud

You can ignore it and continue to play

or seek proper shelter and ask folks to pray

When the wind stops you can see the aftermath

it is at that time you can pick up the trash

That’s just how life is, one moment it’s fine

then all is upset by a tempest in time

A loved one is ill, or worse yet they die

your job is dismissed all you can do is cry

These storms in your life that seem too hard to bear

will bring forth new growth with lessons to share

You will find someone who needs you to hear

the pain they hold close as they cry all those tears

Just be there and listen at first as they tell

of their hardships and trials you know too well

When they hear how you endured the same thing

your answers will hit home in God’s great timing

He comforted you with another lost soul

now He’s using you to help heal their woe

That’s how all things work together for good

we all help each other as God knew we would

To be like His Son is God’s ultimate goal

the best first step is to give Him your soul

He’ll shape you and mold you by giving a gift

only you can use to give others a lift

May your April march on one step at a time

with grace in each step to pass down the line.

I'm a truck driver turned writer. My writing drives people to Jesus.
I love sunsets/sunrises, dark chocolate, coffee, cats and dogs (as long as their owners pick up after them) and solitude. My relationship with God through Jesus Christ is most important to me, not a religion. This writing gig is all God's idea. I only wish to bring more attention to Jesus with it.
