You Take Me There

Published by Family Friend Poems August 2010 with permission of the Author.

As I search for your saving grace,
I know one day I'll see your face.
Waiting is the hardest thing for me.
I know with you I will be so free.
You take me up and lay me back down,
I know with you I am and will be found.
I seek you each day and seek your name,
I am nothing without you or your fame.
Waking with you, you give me power
To make it another day and another hour.
Learning your word is oh so smart.
I love you, Lord, with all my heart.
You gave up for me all your life.
We could not stop all the strife.
Every day I will always say
I long to return to you one day.
Love me, Lord, and keep me strong,
Without you, I can never get along.
So hear my prayers and bring me peace.
My sins, oh Lord, will slowly cease.
My heart is heavy, and I am weak.
Your love is strong as you speak.
Keep me safe at comfort's arms.
Give me grace without any harm.
Give me eternity and take me home.
That day I will never be alone.

Interview with Top Poet Ralph Quinonez

  • What makes this poem one of your favorites?
    I love to write poetry, and "You Take Me" there was the first poem that I had published on Family Friend Poems. It had special meaning because it was a poem I wrote of faith. I had a student approach me with the intent of putting my poem to music from his master's project. That was one of my dreams to put one of my poems to music. He finished it in about 3 months, and I have the sheet music framed with a CD of the actual music on it.
  • How does your faith help you through tough times?
    I have been through tough times, and believing in God, praying, and doing his work keeps me afloat in the everyday struggles that I have and will go through. God is a very important part of my life, and sharing this with people makes me happy. Finding time to read the Bible and learn more of his word, and knowing that he will always be there for me, helps me as I am going through any storm. I make time each day to focus on praying and helping anyone that is in need.
  • You write about a variety of topics. Where do you find your inspiration, and which topic is your favorite to write about?
    I'm inspired by people and some of the things they experience and helping them get another view of the things they are going through. I can relate to some of the things they face, and through prayer, I have found comfort and try to spread it around. I also like going to the beach, and I wrote a poem about it called "While Walking On The Beach" . The coast is my happy place, and it inspires me to write.
  • What is your favorite experience that has resulted from being published on Family Friend Poems?
    I looked up the poem on the internet and found out that quite a few people have used this poem in their obituary. There are other sites that have used it to display all kinds of poetry. I had an Eastern Star group approach me with a request to use one of my poems in their Christmas letter. That was an honor to be asked and a pleasure to have them use it.
