Slip Away

Caught up in life’s slip stream
Pulling me along
Floating on this breeze
Humming a bluesy song
Lord, let me slip away today
Wrapped in your loving arms
Help me find peace and forget
The world and all its poisoned charms
Tempting me wrong

  2. A worthy prayer.
    “Help me find peace and forget
    The world and all its poisoned charms”
    They say that the lord does not give you more than you are able to bear, but oh how I wonder at times.

    Lord, let me slip away today
    Wrapped in your loving arms
    Help me find peace and forget

    An impassioned plea that normally will be rewarded where the Lord’s help is asked for! Yes, Linda, It works that way for the faithful!

  6. Actually your poem allowed me to slip away, thinking about a visit to BB Kings Blues Club a few years ago. I agree that this could be a song.

  7. Slip away to where I wonder? That is a big question- and the answer of loving arms is wonderful. strangely- I think those arms must also be wrapped around us in this world somehow? poisoned charms and all? got me thinkin! Love BB!

  8. “Lord, let me slip away today
    Wrapped in your loving arms
    Help me find peace and forget”

    I am really feeling these lines. This has been my mantra fro the past several weeks, especially the past several days.
