Who But God

Who but yourself and God really know
What is in heart despite what you show
Who but God is ever a listening ear
Providing the love to banish each fear
Who but God gives to Kings and Queens and onto you
The selfsame sky be it cloudy, stormed or blue
Who but God in a knowing light and love
Creates all earth's offerings and the heavens above
Who but God in my last moments of call
Knows this heart, this soul, ever questing love among all.

  1. We are all under the same sky, yes, and this is a beautiful reminder of where the love really is as we seek and seek so much from outside of ourselves. thank you

  2. This is a soul-filled poem that strikes to the heart of my own belief, Rose Marie. Wonderful!


  3. RM - Your link for your book isn't working for me. Could you check it?


  4. Hi Kat,

    Enjoyed my visit and your "hot" post! As far as the link to Publish America it is operational on this end. I asked someone else to test it out from their computer and all worked well. In fact a dear friend placed an order for the hardcover today using the posted link.

    I am so very appreciative of your support. Do keep me posted.

    Many thanks,

    Rose Marie
