Restore Me


Oh restore me and fix me as you,
Mold me gently and breathe in me a new spirit.
I am like a lost bird that has built a nest in a forbidden tree.
Oh how I need you to own me in your courtesy and make me a new creature.
I have been swept into misery and know not my way home.
Oh how I have dipped myself in wealth as I plastered myself with money and material I thought mattered more than anything.
Oh please tone me thoroughly and make me yours.
Let me belong in your species as I have found my identity in you.
Let me dine as I am served in your divine wisdom oh Father…
I lost my way long ago, but I now need to be next to you.
Restore me and make me yours, for from beginning of time,
I have always been yours.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
