A Whisper Speaks

A whisper spoke unto my heart
I turned away, I would not start
a path I could not finish.

A shout rang out to call me back,
I held my ears - another track
would be my chosen dwelling.

A hand touched mine when I cried here,
I pushed away, yet did not fear
another hand would guide me.

Tears mixed with mine, but I with pride
would look elsewhere, my eyes to hide
the gentle face upon me.

A whisper spoke, and on my knees
I heard it through my cries and pleas,
the whisper softly holding me.

I know the voice within my heart,
the voice of God calls me apart
a sinner so beloved.

A whisper speaks to all who hear
of sin and death, and still come near
to drink of Life Eternal.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
