The First Time I Saw Him



This is a free verse poem/spoken word piece I wrote today. I hope it comes across in reading the way I want it to. Enjoy.

The First Time I Saw Him

Everything changes when he walks in the room.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw him.

It was like someone had opened the tomb.

And he did. My heart was truly free. I’ll never forget-

The first time I saw him

I didn’t see him with my eyes

No, for he cannot be seen with natural ability

Only through faith can you know he is with you

And only through faith can you have the relationship

He desires to have with you

I’ll never forget the first time I saw him…

I knew I was broken and nothing could fix me

Nothing but the blood of this man on the crucifix, you see

He willingly gave up his life for mine

And when I saw him for the very  first time

Truly saw him, I gave him everything

All of me belongs to him and

All of him belongs to me

We’re one because he lives in me, you see

I’ll never forget the first time I saw him

How could I? This man who offered me his hand

And said follow me

And so I did. I promised to do it for eternity

One day my eyes will behold him

As he splits the sky wide open

I’ll rise…I’ll rise and my eyes will see him

And I’ll never forget

I’ll never forget the first time I saw him.
