A Missive from God

when everything seems dark
and the mind fills with despair
take heart, have faith,
because I am always there.

when doubts cloud your mind,
and the road seems too long,
just chant my one of my many names,
just sing my heavenly song

I am there within you,
silent, all pervasive and vast,
I can be your new hope,
when the dark clouds are closing in fast.

when life seems a burden
and going on seems too tough,
I am there to provide guidance
smooth the road so rough

you were too busy living,
to see me in any form,
but I am there, to protect you
and shield you from harm

seek and you will find me
and lead you the valley of peace,
where all troubles will seem so small,
and all doubts shall cease.

revel in my existence,
so deep, within your being,
at last you are seeking,
at last you are seeing.

I am there if you want to find me,
I am there if you believe,
I am there watching your acts,
the karmas that you weave.

ask and it shall be given,
pray for guidance or a way out,
skillfully it will be given
to the truthful, and devout.

my ways are so unique
my miracles one of a kind,
keep looking at the future
leave the past behind.

Be one with me,
keep that faith always,
my love for you will encompass you,
like the suns golden rays

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
