Just a Thinkin’

I sat here just a thinkin
While it was late at night
How the stars were oh so pretty
And the moon was really bright.

God in all His wisdom
Made the earth a wondrous place
What a world to live in
He gave us by His grace.

And I was just a thinkin
What God had done for me
And I thought I ought to thank Him
For He had set me free.

As I set there thinkin
All sorts of thoughts went through my mind
About all my family and friends
And hoped they weren’t left behind.

Then I got to thinkin
A prayer probably wouldn’t hurt
So right then and there
I knelt down in the dirt.

I prayed for many things
Prayed all through the night
I prayed for everyone and everything I was thinkin about
I prayed straight thought til daylight.

Then I got to thinkin
He knows what’s in my heart
Maybe some things would change
If I would just do my part.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
