Poetry by Peter Rhebergen


For most of my life I have written poetry. Some of my poems may be good (perhaps even very good), some are merely average and far too many are pleasing only to me. I do not pretend to be a great poet; I am just a man who has experienced both joy and grief and has reflected on these in words. I write because I know The God listens who reads my heart; who finds worship in every smile and tear; who receives each joy as praise and who will heal every wound.


The words on these pages have sprung from the realization that I have no one on whom I can depend other than God. These poems are cries to Him for help; praise to Him for His wonder; and reflections of the universe He has made for us to enjoy. They are the marks of my passage through this wonderful life He has given me. I hope that in seeing my footsteps your own may be made more sure.


These poems are my worship of God and my praise of His glory. It is my prayer that in reading them you will be encouraged to worship God and praise Him for the life He has given you, regardless of its pain or joy.
