Colin Ian Jeffery Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

Colin Ian Jeffery

Rating: 4.8

I would die a poet
Pilgrim from a burnished land
Remembered for humour, compassion and love
Claimed by many as a friend.

Let those who shared His bread
Drink also from His chalice
Seeing God's truth
Knowing joy of salvation.

In childhood
A voice called to me
I hear it calling still.

This one gives a very peacefull feeling to be honest, also its simplicity is in fact the art here, short but not too short and with just that amount of emotions that we need to get, like it :)

i tend to disagree with an earlier comment that said this piece was 'very deep'.It's a pretty straightforward and appealing 'message', and after reading Colin's bio, it puts it into some context.As someone struggerling with their own spiritualism, i was touched by the simpleness and clarity of the last three lines.Altruism is my own personal path toward a higher being(whatever he/she may be) and i have a feeling i might learn a few things, if i continue to read Colin's words.

The poet made me speechless! Faith with which he welcomes death, is unmatchable.
