Window to My Soul

My heart can break
And it can ache
But God will make it better.

My eyes shine bright
With God’s light
The window to my soul.

My days are lighter
Because I’m a fighter
For God’s love.

God gives me blessings
He teaches me lessons
Because He loves me.

God’s light is bright
As it shines tonight
Through the window of my soul.

If you want to see
What you can be
Look through the window of your soul.

With a heart full of love
That comes from above
You can do anything for God.

Prayer is the best
It will give you rest
When you need it most.

What you see
When you look at me
Is the window of my soul.

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.

    ” Window to My Soul ” , is an excellent example of Jan’s remarkably consistent output, of what can be termed , ” Faith-centered ” poetry. In this instance, as is common to much of her work , the reader is led to imagine appropriate musical accompaniment in the background.
