I Love Because God Loves Me
I love the miracle of life
God created me in his image
I love the beauty of nature
When I see the flower garden
Hold on to the trees that give me shade
God is holding me in his arms.
I love the birds that sing
The butterflies with mini-color wings
This is God's gift which I treasure
I love to talk to friends
I like to write poetry for someone who is alone
God tells me what to say and how to say it
I love who I am and where I am to go.
My life has been put together by God
I believe in myself, my friends taught me how
I want to give to others who are lonely
I am always happy and I do not give up on myself
God is in my heart and soul.
I am what He made me.
No one but myself can make a difference in what I do
I ask God to help me, even if I find it hard.
I never give up, or quit
I am proud of who I am.
I love because God loves me
That is the secret of all things.
