Poetry by Peter Rhebergen


For most of my life I have written poetry. I don't know if I'm anywhere near being a good poet, but I do know that I love how words can express so well our deepest thoughts and, as I am a man who has experienced both joy and grief, I reflect on these with words. I write because I know that the One True God hears my heart and listens to my cry; whether it be of joy or grief. God is praised in every smile. God comforts every tear. God heals every wound.


These poems are praise to God for His wonder. They are cries to Him for help. They are my own reflection of the universe He has made for us to enjoy, and which in its own way reflects His glory. They are the marks of my passage through this wonderful life He has given me.


The words on these pages have sprung from my knowing that there is no one more worthy of my devotion than God; I hope that in seeing my footsteps your own may be made more sure.


Although I'm 'proud' of all of them, the poems below are among those I love best:
