Poems by Eddie Johnson

Above The Clouds

  • So many tears I have shed,
  • Oh from the many burdens I have bared. 
  • All my hope was gone
  •  And yes I was all alone. 
  • There was no coming back from my deep despair.  


  •  Then I held my head up, And rose above the clouds


  • So many sleepless nights, 
  • All from life struggles of endless fights. 
  • I just needed someone to help lighten my load 
  • And that would cause me to look for higher heights. 
  • Someone that could make me forget my every care. 


  • Then I held my head up, And rose above the clouds

  

  • I found a new love that was within me
  • And now I have a desire to do more. 
  • I found a new love that was within me 
  • And now I have a reason to soar Above the clouds and to never look down any more  
     

Love’s Burning Desire

A burning desire fueled by passion, 

An inner glow that radiates,

 Like colors brimming spring and paisley.

 


Love’s Burning Desire


A burning desire great and sassy,

Like a jazz trumpeter tune,

 mellow yet sweet, It bellows to rise.   


Love’s Burning Desire

   

A burning desire that transforms life, Treasures unlocked shimmering. Teams of stallions walk proudly in step  

Love’s Burning Desire  


A burning desire is a sea that overwhelms,

 With thunderous ovations seething

 Grains of straws share a resemblance of wheat.   


Love’s Burning Desire


A burning desire a fabric of cashmere Frolicking amongst the moon beams,

It whittles through time and memories.

Be Therefore Ever So Mindful

  • Be therefore ever so mindful
  • How the light in your life had come to dim
  •  And then you reached up to Him.
  •  He wrapped His arms around you
  •  And forgave you then took you in. Remember where you came from
  •  And how He helped you


  •  Be thankful everyday
  •  He has given you one more day on earth to stay.
  • He could have let you go by the wayside
  • But you found in Him, you could confide.
  •  He heard you and answered your prayer
  •  And you have a complete makeover.
  • Stay grounded in Him.


  •  Be therefore ever so mindful
  •  Think of the reward that awaits you. 
  • Don’t turn back, temptation will come
  • And it will go just tell the devil no. 
  • You are headed for heavens shore
  •  And when you get there you’ll know.
  •  You’ll be there for ever mo.

   

  • Be therefore ever so mindful
  •  You’re going to jump and shout
  •  And to Him give continual praise.
  •  Oh I can hear myself now
  •  Saying Lord, I just want to thank you,
  •  Thank you, Lord I just want to thank you 
  •  For being so good to me
  •  And I will be therefore ever so mindful.  .
