Faith Demands

Verse I
Even in the quietest moments
My mind does race
No matter how I try to
Slow down the pace
Just to get a word from you
Especially for me
And when I close my eyes
I find it hard to see

Chorus:
Faith demands
I understand
That I donít have to see
Or hear
Or taste
Or touch
Or smell
What you have for me
I know that youíll back up your word
Regardless how I feel
Because I do not have to see
To know that your for real

Verse II
There is just so many things
That still get in the way
Iíve got so many obligations
To make it through the day
Just to be still and quiet
And know your in control
Like a spring in the desert
Brings refreshment to my soul

Chorus:
Faith demands
I understand
That I donít have to see
Or hear
Or taste
Or touch
Or smell
What you have for me
I know that youíll back up your word
Regardless how I feel
Because I do not have to see
To know that your for real

Very nice poetry. Watch your spelling usage on your and some other words. Keep up the good work.

Lovely poetry! One other small mistake: vs. two should say "There ARE so many things..."

You can your poem set to music, it has that lilt to it with a chorus as well. I like it.

Sorry I left out the word 'have'. I meant to say you can have your poem set to music.
