~ For Once In My Life ~


A great divide ~ had gripped my soul
It held me tight ~ my peace it stole
My breath to gasp ~ I wandered sore
Until He came ~ my heart to call

He bridged the gap ~ with loving arms
He reached for me ~ with healing balm
In love He came ~ His heart was torn
To bring me home ~ to greet the dawn

Across the gulf ~ He sank to death
To bring me light ~ the darkness spent
He stood me safe ~ upon His path
With Shepherds staff ~ He found my heart

This life for once ~ has turned from night
To lose the fear ~ that held me tight
Now I can twirl ~ the night away
My heart knows love ~ to keep always

Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2006
heartwhispers@iinet.net.au


Let thy desire be the vision of God,
thy fear the loss of Him,
thy sorrow His absence,
and thy joy in that which may take thee to Him;
and thy life shall be in great peace.
Teresa of Avila
