Special Friend

by

Carol Scott



If I could be with you right now
And share that silent tear
My heart will tell me what to do
And that's to bring you here

My dearest friend I miss you lots
You're in my heart to stay
I feel you there just hugging me
I feel you every day

You're a very special friend to me
No one will ever match you
We will always be together
Please take care 'cos I do

I end my poem just like this
And send you all my love
You are my Guardian ANGEL
That God sent from above


Break down those walls!!!

by

Carol Scott

Went for a walk had questions in my mind
Wanted to run from my troubles leave them all behind;
Although, running never solved anything for me
I've ran for years trying to be free;

Running I've learned doesn't help me at all
It only seems to build up stronger high walls;
I used to think that keeping up walls was good
I could never get hurt, or be misunderstood;

Now I see my thinking was all wrong
I have to break down those high walls and try to be strong;
These walls were a way of protection for me
Didn't want the hurt to show, or others to see;

The hardest thing in breaking down these walls
Every situation I've been through my heart still recalls;
The suffering, sorrow and pain
Until I face things I'll go through it again;

Lord, I pray You give me the wisdom to work it all out
I pray You strengthen me and help me not to doubt;
Lord, I know not what to say or do
With all these walls I've built how do I break through;

I know I've built them in times of despair
I pray that I remain in Your tender loving care;
Lord, lift me up from the state I'm in
Help me to stand up and start over again;

I seek Your face, Your strength, and Wisdom to
Lord, help me I pray to break down those walls and start knew;
I thank you Lord for hearing my prayer
I pray for those who have walls built up to beware;

I pray this poem touches their hearts
And that you grant them a knew start.


Thank you for your Friendship

by

Carol Scott

Another year is dawning
With the chance to start anew.
May I be kinder, wiser, Lord,
In all I say and do.

Not so caught up in selfish gain
That I would fail to see
The things in life that mean the most
Cost not a fancy fee.

The warm, kind word that I can give,
The outstretched hand to help,
The prayers I pray for those in need--
More precious these than wealth.

I know not what may lie ahead
Of laughter or of tears;
I only need to know each day
That You are walking near.

I'm thankful for this brand new year
As now I humbly pray,
My hand secure in Yours, dear Lord,
Each step along the way


untitled

by

Carol Scott

There is a special place in life,
That needs my humble skill,
A certain job I'm meant to do,
Which no one else can fulfill.

The time will be demanding,
The pay is not too good,
And I wouldn't change it for a moment,
Even if I could.

There is a special place in life.
A goal I must attain,
A dream that I must follow.
Because I won't be back again.

There is a mark that I must leave.
However small it seems to be.
A legacy of love for those,
Who follow after me.

There is a special place in life,
That only I may share.
A little path that bears my name,
Awaiting me somewhere.

There is a hand that I must hold,
A word that I must say,
A smile that I must give,
For there are tears to blow away.

There is a special place in life
That I was meant to fill.
A sunny spot where flowers grow,
Upon a windy hill.

There's always a tomorrow
And the best is yet to be,
For somewhere in this world,
I know there is a place for me.


A Blessing

by

Carol Scott

Oh what a blessing you have been to me.
I thank God for this friendship that was meant to be.
You are so giving and have always been there.
When times I did not understand,
You showed me that you cared.
Life is so hard and pressures are real.
But we have a GOD we know who can heal.
I know much encouragement came my way.
My GOD sent a friend who will always stay.
I thank you for caring and sharing your love.
That could only come through GOD above.
May GOD bless your life so richly this day.


One Desire

by

Carol Scott

Lord, My one Desire is to catch the fire
that burned in my soul so long ago.
When I first found truth in my wayward youth
and vowed to change my ways
every day I'd praise every day I'd crave
to be with you.
When you proved true I slowed my pace
I turned my face every now and then.
I walked away from my one true friend
I let you slip out of my mind.
Now I search again so help me find.
I want to live that fire again.
so fan the flames. Let me feel the heat.
Bring me to my crippled feet.
Let me dance with you. Like I used to.
Stoke the fire. Bring me higher higher
Bring me back to you, and the fire I knew.
Let me feel the fire.


God made you for a reason

by

Carol Scott

When I look upon my screen
I find a happy reason
the joy that comes to me from you
is gratitude so very pleasing...

What a wonderful creator
that made a friend like you,
He placed a sweet kind person
and gave me lots of comfort too.

A world without your kindness
would be a sad sad world.

But I don't have to worry,
there's no need to be,
because of you I am very happy,
and that's good enough for me.

I've found great people everywhere, t
hey come into my life.
Just like you, all those others too,
have given me delight.

So I thank God I met you,
I thank him for all seasons.
Now I know for sure with all my heart,
GOD Created YOU for a reason.


God is Kool !!!

by

Carol Scott

Ooh, God you are so Kool.
Like Wow God you are really Great.
I bask in your presence like I do with no man.
I joy in your glory you've spread on the land.
You are totally and always.
You are hip and tubular.
You are my everything and my wonder king.
You are the greatest. You are my favorite.
The most and the best. Above all the rest.
My God you are like Wow to me. Like Totally Kool.
You are the Richest, the Keenest, The neatest.
You are the sweetest, the fastest, the bestest.
I praise you. I love you. I live You. I do.
Like wow God, I'm so glad that you love me too


Come to You Lord

by

Carol Scott

I come to You Lord with my pains
I come to You Lord with my burdens
O Lord above hear my call
Wherever I am Lord You are there
My soul to You O Lord I bare
Carry me now in my time of need
To my prayers and tears O Lord take heed
Alongside me You will always be
I search for comfort and its You I see
To fall into Your arms so caring
My love my life with You I’m sharing
So thank You Lord for all You do
That Your words for all are always true
I sing praise to You both day and night
I thank You Lord You are my light.


A Faithful God

by

Carol Scott

Oh, God You are faithful
You keep promises in truth.
I believe You are able
And look forward to all You'll do!
I have faith expecting
You'll work and do the God-sized.
It's a part of accepting
What You'll do in my life!
You ask, "Will you trust me?"
To this my heart responds,
"Yes, Lord, I believe,
And I trust You for You are my God!"


Song of Praise

by

Carol Scott

Then said Almitra, "Speak to us of Love."
And he raised his head and looked upon the people,
and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said:
When love beckons to you follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind
lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire,
that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.
All these things shall love do unto you that you may know
the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge
become a fragment of Life's heart.
But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness
and pass out of love's threshing- floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh,
but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart,"
but rather, I am in the heart of God."
And think not you can direct the course of love,
if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart
and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.


Heartprints whatever our hands touch

by

Carol Scott

We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture, on doorknobs, dishes, books.
There's no escape.
As we touch we leave our identity.
Oh God, wherever I go today
Help me leave heart prints!
Heart prints of compassion, of understanding and
love.
Heart prints of kindness and genuine concern.
May my heart touch a lonely neighbour?
Or a runaway daughter or an anxious mother
Or perhaps an aged grandfather.
Lord, send me out today to leave heart prints.
And if someone should say, "I felt your touch,"
May that one sense YOUR LOVE Touching through ME.


A Special Place

by

Carol Scott

There is a special place in life,
That needs my humble skill,
A certain job I'm meant to do,
Which no one else can fulfill.

The time will be demanding,
The pay is not too good,
And I wouldn't change it for a moment,
Even if I could.

There is a special place in life.
A goal I must attain,
A dream that I must follow.
Because I won't be back again.

There is a mark that I must leave.
However small it seems to be.
A legacy of love for those,
Who follow after me.

There is a special place in life,
That only I may share.
A little path that bears my name,
Awaiting me somewhere.

There is a hand that I must hold,
A word that I must say,
A smile that I must give,
For there are tears to blow away.

There is a special place in life
That I was meant to fill.
A sunny spot where flowers grow,
Upon a windy hill.

There's always a tomorrow
And the best is yet to be,
For somewhere in this world,
I know there is a place for me.

Precious Friend

by

Carol Scott

You are truly a precious gift
Who gave me what you are
And whenever I need a lift
I know that you are never far

Words can’t express your value to me
You’re the kindest, caring person I met
Without you, I don’t know where I’d be
You’d give your all for others, I bet

I don’t know how to thank you for being so special
But I still want you to know how I feel
You’re far more precious than a costly jewel
As far as friends go, YOU ARE IDEAL


Jonathan my son

by

Carol Scott

My darling son, you are the world to me
And I'll always love you eternally
I love you son, can't you see
Just how much you mean to me

There's no one else can take your place
Cos' their all a big disgrace
The minute I met you, I knew to love
Cos' God has sent you from above

You're in my thought, you're in my dreams
you're in my everything it seems
My darling Jonathan, you are the best
God picked you from all the rest

In Philippines, there shines the sun
Where my son lives, he's a lot of fun
Jonathan son, you live in my heart
I get sad when we have to part

Anyway son, for now that's all
Until I hear your fine voice call
I'll end my poem with a kiss
And pray for you it does not miss

God loves u Jonathan so do I


God Bless America

by

Carol Scott

To help the souls from that sad day
This girl from UK would like to pray
Please hear my prayer Lord above
And pass it on to those we love

It broke our hearts, we did not sleep
11th of September, the day we weep
Who can explain the reason why
All those people had to die

The bad men came from Afghanistan
Blew the towers up and every man
Lord, I pray they will not go free
They took our people, make them see

God bless the people, up above
They came to You, for You to love
Protect them Lord, until we die
And we'll be there with them on High


If God went on strike

by

Carol Scott


It’s a good thing God above
Has never gone on strike
Because He ‘wasn’t treated fair’
Or __’things He didn’t like’
If He had ever once sat down
And said, ‘That’s it _.. I’m through
I’ve had enough of those on earth
So this is what I’ll do____.

I’ll give my orders to the sun
‘Cut off your heat supply’
And to the moon, ‘now give no light’
And run those oceans dry
Then just to make it really tough
And put the pressure on
‘Turn off the air and oxygen
Till every breath is gone’

And surely He’d be justified
If fairness was the game
For no one has been more abused
Or treated with disdain
Than God_.and yet He carries on
Supplying you and me
With all the favours of His grace
And everything for free

Men say they want a better deal
And so on strike they go
But what a deal we’ve given God
To whom all things we owe!
We don’t care whom we hurt or harm
To gain the things we like
But what a mess we’d all be in
If God should go on strike!


Don't Quit

by

Carol Scott

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill
When the funds are low and the debts are high
When you want to smile but you can only sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit -
Rest if you must BUT don’t you quit

Life is queer with it’s twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man
Often the struggler has given up
When might have captured the victor’s cap
And he learned too late when the night came down
How close he was to a golden crown

Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems afar
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit -
It’s when things seem worse that you mustn’t QUIT


The 'SON' God gave me

by

Carol Scott

My darling son, you are the world to me
And I'll always love you eternally
I love you son, can't you see
Just how much you mean to me

There's no one else can take your place
Cos' their all a big disgrace
The minute I met you, I knew to love
Cos' God has sent you from above

You're in my thought, you're in my dreams
you're in my everything it seems
My darling Jonathan, you are the best
God picked you from all the rest

In Philippines, there shines the sun
Where my son lives, he's a lot of fun
Jonathan son, you live in my heart
I get sad when we have to part

Anyway son, for now that's all
Until I hear your fine voice call
I'll end my poem with a kiss
And pray for you it does not miss


This sinful world

by

Carol Scott


People of this world what have you done?
Why have you forsaken God's only begotten Son?
People of this world why are you filled with so much hate?
We need to turn back to God before it is to late.
Through the ages this world has gotten worse.
Because of our sin's we have all been cursed.
People of this world what have you done?
Why have you forsaken God's only begotten Son?
When the terrorist attacked on nine- eleven.
God was looking down from Heaven.
He was looking to see how we would react.
Did you ask him to save you and take you back?
The world was seeking him that terrible day.
But now the world has turned back to it's evil way.
People of this world what have you done?
Why have you forsaken God's only begotten Son?
Did you pray for the families that lost love one's that day?
Or did you do nothing and just go about your own way?
Did you say it did not involve me so why should I care?
Or did you stop where you were at and say a prayer?
People of this world what have you done?
Why have you forsaken God's only begotten Son?
I have seen so many families killing each other.
Why has this world turned brother against brother?
There are kid's killing parents and parent killing kid's.
Do you not know that this is what God forbids?
If only we could love each other like the bible says we should do.
This world would be a better place for you and me.
People of this world what have you done?
Why have you forsaken God's only begotten Son?

My dear friend James wrote this to me


My friends from USA

by

Carol Scott

My prayers and thoughts are with you
At this crucial time.
I hope as American citizens
Everything will turn out fine

Stand up for your rights guys
"Under God" will remain with you
I'll keep you all in my heart
And be safe in all you do

I may just be a BRIT BRAT
But my heart lives in the States
We may never meet on earth
But I'll meet you in heaven gates

4th July, Independance Day
I wish you all the best
I pray you all have peace that day
And GOD will do the rest

God Bless one and all


A Year after the Scottish Disaster

by

Carol Scott

A year ago when they said bye
Unknown to then that they would die
They went to gym, to play a game
And then Dunblane was not the same

The teacher tried, she did her best
She lost her life, hiding the rest
Who can explain the same why
The babes and Gwenne all had to die

A nasty man, came in your gym
He shot at you, he looked so grim
It broke our heart, we couldn't sleep
13th of March, we'll always weep

God bless the angels up above
They came to You for You to love
Protect them Lord until we die
And we'll be there with them on high


A Year after a Disaster

by

Carol Scott

A year has passed since that sad day
For Americans far and wide
This disaster broke their hearts
And still they cry inside

The Twin Tower building will never stand
On the ground that did them proud
All that remains are memories
Of the voices that were loud

Dear Lord above, You were there
On that sad, sad day
You held each person as they came
For You to show the way

To home they went with You on High
But some still chose to say NO
Who knows Lord just where they went
I think they went below

After one year their hearts still hurt
The Afghanistans left a mess
But as a Nation they'll grow strong
But how long is anyone's guess!

God loves you all and so do I
Dear friends from the USA
This was written in memory
From your Scottish friend in UK


United We Stand As A Nation

by

Carol Scott

Together as a nation, we stand up and fight
The Afghanstans, made a terrible sight
They blew up the towers, and others parts too
Now we say "What shall we do?"

Turn to the Lord, a prayer can be said
For all the people that are now dead
Ask Him to give us the peace that we need
And in our heart we let Him lead

In war, the Brits are joining you
Tony Blair says we've got to do!
As a Brit myself I'd like to say
I love you all from the USA

My heart is with you, over there
Just to let you know, I care
You've been a friend to me throughout
I love you friend there is no doubt

May the Lord bless you, my precious friend
I'll be with you, right to the end
We'll fight together, just you and I
To keep our friendship, until we die


Sinner's Prayer

by

Carol Scott

SINNER'S PRAYER

Heavenly Father, I Know that I am a sinner and I ask Your forgiveness. I confess and believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour and died for our sins. I believe that in my heart You raised Him from the dead. I renounce my past life in sin and thank You for forgiving me. I invite You to come into my heart and life, following You with trust and commitment as Lord and Saviour. In Jesus' Name. Amen

Today I am a sinner Lord
Come and hold my hand
Show me what I've got to do
While living in this land

I go from day to day Lord
And sin I always do
Give me the strength to hold my tongue
Until I speak to You

I need You Lord in my life
I can't live another day
Enter now, right to my heart
And You can lead the way

In my heart, You're with me now
As I try to sin no more
Guide my life upon this earth
Till I knock on heaven's door

I give to You Oh Lord of mine
Each friend who cares to read this
Hold them in Your arms dear Lord
For they are the friends I miss

AT MY HOUSE

At my house I'm serving God
As long as I shall live
Because He is my best friend
With all that He does give

I beg you now to talk to Him
And let Him in your heart
Because my friend He is the best
Once in there, He'll not depart

He'll forgive your sins and throws them out
But only if you pray
Ask the Lord to be with you
Each and every day

So if my friend, you want the Lord
Your heart to him you give
And in addition, I am here
"Come to my house and live"

I am your friend, I am UK
I'll love you till I die
Here is what I want to say
God loves you and so do I


I heard the Lord speak

by

Carol Scott

I heard the Lord speak one night
And He was speaking to me
You are my child and I love you so
In your heart I long to be

I closed my eyes and spoke to Him
I felt His loving touch
I asked the Lord to enter in
Cos I love Him very much

From that day He's been with me
But some days I let Him down
I ask the Lord to forgive me
And He lifts my saddest frown

So now you know just what to do
When the good Lord speaks to you
Do all the things that I did
And he will love you too
