Six years of my life devoted
To poetry, so the world may come
To know, through my simple words,
The message that I heard many
Years ago as a young girl.
One eventful summer day, a
Christian Counselor and Friend led
Me to my Lord Jesus Christ.
He is the candle light of my world!
That summer of 1968 I was thirteen.
Being a Christian was better than all of my dreams.
However, my beloved mother of
Mine always would say, "Roxanne,"
You were saved at the age of nine!"
When I was nine, I ran around
Our church shouting, "I am free!"
When I was thirteen, a huge
Weight was lifted off of me.
Love in Christ Jesus!
Roxanne Lea Dubarry
