Fingerprints (2009)


It took years for me to trust completely
But you see God in me
I used to be afraid to share personal stories
But I was admired
I trusted very few but had higher expectations
For the ones I had faith in
But I lived with blind faith
We had few moments in the living years
But the ones we had then made you
Even more important in my post-collegiate years
For it os very Christian to serve each other
For it is like a husband to place
His woman's needs before his own
That is why his soul can mend my heart
Because I still had his wrapped in mine
God reassembled the broken pieces into a whole
But when it was whole (God noticed another
Heart was bound to it with Duck Tape)
His fingerprints on both of us
As we emerged as a unit for years
To settle unfinished love
Beyond the Power of Death

In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
