O God, may Your light of love and truth always shine through illuminating all the darkness and dispelling our ignorance too. You are the Only One That eternally shines by Its own infinite light and everything’s a reflection of Thy glory witnessed by divine sight. _______
From 'The Quatrains' ongoing writings since the early '90's.
for the first time in my life, I'm not hiding. I stand with my walls down and my heart open. my legs are shaking, and my breathing is shallow.
he wraps his arms around me to keep me steady. my head rests on his chest as he strokes my hair. I close my eyes for a moment, finally able to rest.
I look at him carefully, and I see no armor. his walls are down and his heart is open. his legs are shaking, and his breathing is shallow.
we hold each other until our love grows roots. then we let go, and our smiles illuminate the world. he takes my hand in his, and we walk together.
This poem is very close to my heart. I don't think I've been as honest and vulnerable with anyone as I have been with this person. He has said the same about me. It is wonderful to love and be loved back in this way, and I hope anyone looking for love will feel this way with someone.
Did you tell her she wasn't worth it Laying on single mattress alone, searching purpose. She would go out through nights When the streetlights would only illuminate Sitting on an old bridge with me until very late. Before the night ended she stopped to say "If everything was a little less Could I be a little more?" Laughing while everyone slept, Talking about future plans, we knew were unsure And barely going home until the sun crept. Over those pines on Washburn street.
Every weekend she would get lost at a bar Starring drinks made to forget, Featuring people made to remember, Knowing this world for her, wasn't forever. Sitting ideally at the next seat, I hoped it all changed For the better for you. Smiling into a glass like home wasn't hell, Watching people pass we would tell All the amazing places we had been Leaving out the hardships and pain.
Until one day, I searched for you unfound, Asking, they said you finally packed up Leaving for a better town. Perfectly in silence, you went through the night Through illuminated streetlights.
Sunshine please continue shine, In this dark world we need your light. Your soul has so much to offer this world, to feed it the creative healing work the King has taken time to piece and puzzle together, so that YOU can see how you’re truly defined. Please yearn to reach the days in this world where your light invades in the darkest of places. Where when you touch you illuminate, where you speak Gods healings begins to form. His word & Grace makes all new Yes!! He chose you to perform miraculous things, all because you chose not to dim your light.
