The crucifix I have above my bed
Looks down on me as I rest my head,
And as I look up into His face above
I hear these words He says with love.
"This body of mine like the one on you
Is just a suitcase for my soul just as yours is for you
And no matter through wear if it may become torn
Battered and bruised just remember its worn,
Only as a suitcase to carry your soul
As you journey through life just to keep it whole.
So if it gets ripped then just be glad
You can stitch it up again using the threads of sad
By doing so you will turn the pain right round
And give it a purpose to keep you sound,
For as you travel on seeing others suffer too
Understanding, compassion will grow in you!
For your Soul travelling within on its journey of life
Will grow by the experience of living strife,
So that at final destination you will happily see
Your suitcase opened to set your Soul free
Free to live forever in peace without doubt
Because God was the one who let you out!"

Enter my heart’s domain
Walk with me in dreams my love
And for a while remain
Cherish things that were my love
Under a moonlit sky
Do not grieve for me my love
I would not see thee cry
I will wait for thee my love
Down the span of ages
And I will write my words of love
In life’s eternal pages
And as I take my leave my love
I’ll utter no goodbyes
Until we meet again my love
For true love never dies.

God is My Priority
Accept within heart***Life will have splendor
God created all things and our foundation
Give life over to Him with total surrender
Believe with faith in heart that you are one of chosen
Faith is precious and we must keep strengthened
Earnestly do pray to God that you will be ambrosian
Keep mind, body and spirit well and life’s lengthened
Focus on God’s kingdom and don’t worry of earth
Try to blot out hardships seen and try to sow seed
Try to keep joy in your heart and always use mirth
A small act of kindness can be a good deed
Feel His spirit within your being
Never doubt Almighty’s power
Great life He’s guaranteeing
He sends rain shower
Believe in Him
Do heed His call

God's Glory on High
Believe it and achieve it,
Look at it and go for it.
Reach for it.
Aspiration toward the sky
Inspiration never dies.
Not going back.
Heading for the top
Rise up from the dust
All of God’s people
Who have been crushed
Because your time has come!
© Joseph S. Spence, Sr.
I AM HANDING YOU MY HEART
I am handing you my heart.
Please don't rip it apart.
Handle it with care,
All my loves in there.
Give you it is control,
I trust you, "You know?"
Take the strings in your hands
Now your wishes are my commands
It may skip a beat or two,
That's because of you.
Never return it to me.
If you do shattered it will be.
Please take good care of it.
The love in it will never quit.
My heart now belongs to you.
It will my whole life through.
Each chamber is full,
of the only love I know.
Over time it may wear out
But the love won't without doubt.
So never return it to me,
Keep it until eternity.
Yes! I am handing you my heart.
It has been owned by you
Right from the very start.

The Perfect Shadow
The Moon does shine upon the Earth.
A loving Moon, a lovers mirth.
Moon beams shine through trees like lace.
Silouette of darling upon your face.
Laughter permeates a hidden meadow.
While Moon rays cast the perfect shadow.

The First Step ( Free Style)
The first step is often the hardest
that everyone has to take.
We may often become discouraged
when we stumble or fall down,
these obstacles have to be overcome.
Exited or frightened
it all begins with the first step,
learning to walk, run or to dance,
the first day in school,
the first date or romance.
Some dreams may fuel a fire
and may reach that goal,
if we don't take that first step
we shall never know.
Not every first step gives you the vision
to make the right decision
even if the path seems right
it is for everyone to know,
like each has his private rainbow.
Never be afraid to take that first step,
doesn't matter if your young or old
always try to do your best, with faith
the Lord will help you with the rest.

A Teary Legacy (Faux Limerick)
It's on brokenness, sweat, and tears I write
Tears flowing from eyes night after night
Sweat pouring from forehead
New journey she now dread
When it's all over she'll be alright
Storms of life has caused her heart to weep
She leaves a message for sons to keep
Nothing is rehearsed see
Sharing no cup of tea
Poetry written words are not deep
On broken pieces I come to you
With the Lord's help we have made it through
There's healing in each line
In the end you'll be fine
A new vision is now in your view
So in your spirit I plant a seed
Please be blessed through and through as you read
This prayer for you I pray
You find healing today
With sweat and tears I bid you Godspeed
