Fountain Of Light

A Beautiful Light
Oh how I cry at its beauty
Shining so lovingly
I wait to visit this Garden
The Garden of Light
Flowing from the fountain, God

Beauty beyond compare
How could I dare
To sin against this great light
This is a great fight
Tears pour from my eyes
Wanting to see My God

Bound to this accursed Earth
Sin surrounded
A Storm raging in my mind
I am so strong in the lord
His word pours from my mouth
Infinite light descending on Darkness

Shaken so drastically
Burning until his hand,
Such a cool hand,
Saves my soul from the fire

To every corner
Neverending light
Clause or none
Provoking Darkness into
The smallest nook
Not existing

The Complexity of his being
So simply put
Why is it so far away?
Its Not!

    I wait to visit this Garden
    The Garden of Light
    Flowing from the fountain, God

    What turn of phrase you have, lovely repetition of garden there, poetic but in everyday language still. This is super. I did a poem which referred to a fountain of light, 'Glide Me Till Senseless' it's called. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
