Poem #4 from the title ideas from Robin. Love this one!
The wind blew through the trees
And birds soared through the air
While the sun bestowed its light
On every living creature there.
Taking in the scene before him
From the place where he now stood
He smiled and nodded his approval
Then he said that it was good.
And yet with all the garden’s beauty
The joy he felt was bittersweet
So he pondered in his heart
Just what would make his world complete.
From the dust he formed an image
Of the one he would call man
“Now breathe,” he said with tender love
And, thus, the human race began.
As time passed he sensed man’s yearning
He thought, “Man should not be alone,
I’ll create a woman to share his life
And she shall be made from his bone.”
Now everything seemed to be perfect
But the enemy slithered his way in
So sad was the day of the greatest deceit
When death became the price for their sin.
We still fall but God’s love is boundless
His mercy there for all who believe
The penalty paid put his Son in the grave
Death was conquered when God said, “Now Breathe.”
