Praying with you

Praying with you

Praying with you is
like walking
on the morning grass
with the fickle dewdrops
tickling our bare feet
while our souls meet
and smile to greet
each other

Praying with you is
like drifting
on wispy, white clouds
on a sunny day, as we play
like little kids
a little fine, a little fey
And as our game starts
our love engulfs our hearts

Praying with you is
Like dreaming
a magnificent dream
where we scream
in ecstasy
as a rainbow wraps
you and me
in vibrant colours of glee

Praying with you is
Like weaving
a fairy story
that we fill with
God’s goodness and glory
Each memory we create
is a tale of our sweet love
so memorable, so great

Permanence

Permanence

My feelings these days
they are so strange
…they have such a range

Now, I am happy and ecstatic
Then, frightened and frantic

Now, I dream, hope and desire
Then, all my hopes catch fire

Now, I want to sing and dance
Then, I just get lost in a trance

Now, I see all so plain and clear
Then, my vision is blurred by a tear

Now, all I want is to conjugate
Then, I wonder about our fate

Now, your joy is my only goal
Then, my soul cries for your soul

My feelings these days
They are so strange
But my love for you
…doesn’t change
