Poem: Cross in my pocket

Cross in my pocket



I carry a cross in my pocket,

A simple reminder to me

That I am a Christian,

No matter where I may be.


This little cross isn’t magic,

Nor is it a good luck charm.

It isn’t meant to protect me

From every physical harm.


It’s not for identification

For all the world to see.

It’s simply an understanding

Between my Savior and me.


When I put my hand in my pocket

To bring out a coin or a key,

The cross is there to remind me

Of the price He paid for me.


It reminds me too, to be thankful

For my blessings every day,

And to strive to serve Him better

In all that I do or say.


It’s also a daily reminder

Of the peace and comfort I share

With all who know my Master

And give themselves to His care.


So, I carry a cross in my pocket

Reminding none but me

That Jesus Christ is Lord of my life,

If only I’ll let Him be.
