God “Liked Me” First

One month ago today,

I happily entered this strange,

And wonderful,

“WordPress Land!”


It’s easy,

To get caught up wondering,

“Do you like my poems?”

“Do you like me?”

“Really?  Do ya?  Do ya?  Do ya?”


Everyone’s busy,

With lives to lead, 

It’s easy to see.

So thanks for your interest,

And stopping to read…


What a blessing and a sweet surprise!


It brings me joy to meet,

Fellow soul travelers such as yourself,

With separate journeys,

Yet connected at our Essence or Core.


I’m touched by your likes and encouraging words.


Still keepin it all in perspective,

And keepin it real,

God “liked me” first;

His beloved child,

Most cherished and adored!


-Gilda Patricia

God’s Loving Gaze





My human (body) form,

Inside and out;


You see this,

And so much more…






You see me,

In my entirety;


In my grandeur,

And frailty,

My successes,

And crushing failures,


Whether I’m smooth sailing,

With the wind behind,

Or swimming upstream,



Even when I’m standing still,

Or laying desperate,

Broken and defeated,

On the ground,


The whole world rushing by…


You see me.


Holding me steadfast,

In your loving gaze,

You see me as I am,

And I rise like a new day,

Warmed by the light,

Of the sun.


Thank God, You see me.

Sweet Music

What can I say?

You entice me with your words,

Your rhythm, your pulse,

Music, I adore thee!


You take me on a journey,

Of the heart,

With memories of times long ago,

And loves lost.


But you candy coat them all,

With sweetness and fondness,

So they never rust,

Or get swept away like dust.


You define moments,

As I live them,

Making good ones seem more wonderful,

And tough times more palatable.


Music sweet music,

How do you weave your magic?

Your notes must be a sister cord,

To the heart strings of my soul!
