A Breath Apart - Poem by Bee Kilpatrick

The beginning and end are only a breath apart
From our eternal home
Our breath on loan
From our birth does roam
Until it finds some momentary rest
For the grave has lost its power
And waits only for the hour
For the Son to shine
With the breath of His love
On the wings of the Dove
To the tears of their well watered graves
The faithful dead shall rise
And today and tomorrow and all of the sorrow
Shall have all disappeared with the raise of the Son

    Such a poignant and soothing serenity flowing from your poem. Love the line - 'The beginning and end are only a breath apart from our eternal home'. You have dispersed a silent hope in this poem, that everyone will one day be reunited in God, and all sorrow will disappear then. Fantastically spiritual poem, a well and depth of meaning in it. So glad I came across your poetry, it is definitely a treasure chest of inspiration. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report)Reply
