You Speak

Standard

“I am myself a word spoken by God. Can God speak a word that does not have any meaning?” Thomas Merton

 

You speak
and I breath the air
that you imagine,

smile, and like the calling bird,
I rise to the sun!

But when my selfish soul
swells with self-
sent hell
you wake me,
and expel me
from my troubled sleep.

Oh, I yearn for that day
when forgiven and
by your love
subsumed,
I’ll steadfastly abide
in your constant light.

  1. I really like the first stanza. I also like what the last stanza has to say, that
    when forgiven and
    by your love
    subsumed,
    I’ll steadfastly abide
    in your constant light.
    Forgiveness, love, light. . .
