One Touch

Here I am, just a remnant of a man
Standing high on pride
Treading lightly on my shaky ground
Not wanting to make a sound
For fear of waking up inside

Here I am, just a remnant of a man
Lost without a trace
Walking softly on Your solid rock
Not wanting to give me up
I just tiptoe through your grace

But, one touch is all it takes
To feel your love for me
One touch is all it takes
And my eyes begin to see
One touch is all it takes
To convict me of my sin
One touch is all it takes
For me to let You in

Here I am, still a remnant of a man
Starting to count the cost
Feeling trapped by my selfish flesh
Not wanting to feel your breath
But hating to always feel lost

Here I am, still a remnant of a man
Saying yes I do believe
Casting aside all my selfish rights
Knowing they’re not worth the fight
I just ask to be received

And, one touch is all it takes
To feel your love for me
One touch is all it takes
And my eyes begin to see
One touch is all it takes
To convict me of my sin
One touch is all it takes
Jesus please come in

Love in the Truth.

WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF POETRY: said...

Trevor this is just brilliant, it could be made into an inspirational song if you knew someone who could write the melody.
I could never write anything like that. Have you anymore like that?
Thanks for sharing.

Yvonne.

The only poems I've ever written are this one and couple others for my wife. I am hoping to try to write more, but I'm a little nervous about it. I never think anything I write is that good.

Thank you for the encouraging words. I'll be following you during the contest!

Trevor that is so beautiful tears welled up in my eyes! I'm not an active believer in any religion, but I am very spiritual and that poem touched my heart. Nice work!
