At the End of the Day

At the End of the Day

At the end of the day
At the end of my rope
There is only one name
In which there is hope

When I feel so drained
And my strenght is all gone
I cling to the Rock
And with faith I hold on

The Lord is the only
One on whom I depend
He is my Savior,
My breath, life and friend

And some day soon
In the twinkle of an eye
He'll come to take me
To Heaven for all time.

I was inspired to write this after reading a friend's status.

Your Adam

Several years ago I wrote a poem called Your Eve that is on this blog....tonight I wrote the companion piece to it and hope to have them hanging side by side on the wall.

Your Adam
Melissa B Stokes, May 7, 2013

I'll be the Adam to your Eve
The one by your side
The one to cherish  you
For the rest of your life

I'll be the head of our home
as our family I’ll lead
The one there to hold you
When it's comfort you need

We can look past the sadness
and failure in the past
And together we will move on
with a love that will last

God brought us together
in His time and His way
He is making something special
That will give Him the praise.

From this moment forward
Until the end of time
I will be the true love of your life
And Melissa you'll be mine!!!
