Beginnings


A birth
But no room
A singular star
Heavens above
A cross
Of baring
A finer love

    A simple and fine piece, said in few words, engulfed in one true meaning, , His simplicity, being humble and His never ending love..My heart is full of joy reading this, His simple ways even if He is a King..His simple love to us that covers all.Thanks again for this David. (Report) Reply
