Dawn - Poem by Carmela Patterson

Early morning has begun and the dawn sky
Fills the horizon with ribbons of purple, pink and gold;
What a beauteous sight to behold,
high in the sky to delight the seeing eye.

All is quiet and You speak to the silence in my heart
Lovely serenity is the gift You impart
I drink it in and breathe a tranquil sigh
For the blessed scene will soon say goodbye.

But as I gaze upon those magnificent hues
Now stretching for as far as my eye can see
My soul swells and my ears hear the cues
And I thank and praise You exuberantly.

O that everyone could take in the glowing sight
Of the early morning radiance, a mere shadow of your Light
A promise of an eternal life that awaits the faithful soul
Where You are the God who fashioned it all,
O Lord, our God, our Ultimate Goal.
