Time zoomed by
trailed by the debris of a
speckled with dark shadows '
ghosts of lost opportunities...
Spooky images wafted up
out of a cavernous past
A tumult of unfulfilled promises
echoed back and forth. Loud, louder...
But Life stood comatose
plunged into deathly despair.
Then came a soft whisper '
The gentle rustle of your abiding faith
The soothing salve of your compassion
Blew a serene kiss of hope
And life sprang up in a song and dance
Pulsating, joyous, vibrant
Engulfed in the glowing passion of your love.
