This poem was originally written ten years ago for my sisters-in-Christ. It’s about spending quality time with Jesus, something that’s more important than ever in today’s world. May you be blessed with His peace and comfort! 💕💕

Take Me Away

Take me away to a quiet place.
Let me gaze contentedly upon Your lovely face.
Speak to me in gentle tones,
Just you and I, together alone.
Let me feel Your presence and hear Your voice.
I long for You only, as if I had no choice.

Take me away to a quiet place.
Let me rest in the safety of Your loving embrace.
Where peace like a lazy river flows,
And perfumes the air like a sweet smelling rose.
No chaos, no drama, no stresses of life.
Just tranquility and comfort, freedom from strife.

Take me away, just You and me,
To a quiet place where we can just be.
