God’s Refuge

God’s Refuge

Regina Puckett


I flew over a deep sea of worries

I blew through difficulties’ flurries

I climbed over trouble’s mountain

I tiptoed through pain’s fountain

I waded through anxiety’s deluge

To seek shelter under God’s refuge



One Soul

One Soul

Regina Puckett


Heart to heart and hand in hand

Fingers entwined in a wedding band

Year after year trusting in the other

Now a father and now a mother

Watching our love grow and grow

Until it completely swallows us whole

You are me and I’m just as much you

One soul made from what was once two

Whatever Comes

Regina Puckett


Life is often so hard

It leaves you scarred

It takes without giving

So why keep on living?

Maybe it’s for the passion

Maybe it’s for compassion

Maybe it’s you just want more

So you open another day’s door

Ready to take on whatever comes

Blessed to face one of God’s suns


The True Depth of My Heart


The True Depth of My Heart


Regina Puckett


My gray hairs are like the rings of a tree

It measures each year that I’ve been me

So if you numbered each and every one

You would discover each battle I’ve won

You would total my laughter and tears

You would determine all of my fears

You could sum up what I wanted most

You might even run into past’s ghost

But if you want to know who I’ve prized

The true depth of my heart can’t be sized

One Whole

Regina Puckett


Two pieces of one whole

Soul connecting to soul

Always working it out

Through years and doubt

Through sickness and health

Our love – our only wealth

Two kids walking into old age

Furiously turning each page

Words of love writing our story

A pledge – our only claim to glory

A Hungry Baby

Regina Puckett


Like the lint in my pocket

Like an unmovable rocket

Like iron that rusted away

Like the moon rising in the day

Like singers who never sing

Like a doorbell that won’t ding

This is our hope when it finally dies

A hungry baby no one hears its cries


Its Prey

Its Prey

Regina Puckett


I stood too close to the fire

It seared my heart in its pyre

Smoke rose until I couldn’t see

Pain stealing what made me

When I could not back away

The furnace made me its prey


Some Things

Some Things

Regina Puckett


I still hold onto my mother’s apron’ strings

I stand still under the breeze of angel wings

I soar alongside the memory of my brother

And I still heed the words of my dear mother

I wish I could still ask my father’s wise advice

Some things in this world are worth any price

Blue Tint

Regina Puckett


Scrawled there in print

In shades of blue tint

Screams of sad remorse

Of love driven off course

A letter sprinkled with tears

Hearts torn asunder by fears

Run, run, if you truly must

Love is nothing without trust

Silence is a great balm to the soul

It is like washing out a dirty bowl

Cleansing every corner of your mind

A delicate way to peacefully rewind

So let serene silence pour over you

Until your heart recalls what to do
