Embrace Me O New Morning Light! - Poem by Obed dela Cruz
Embrace me O new morning light with the morning dew!
There is a love that helps even in the edge of doom,
A love where shattered hopes and dreams restored back anew,
A love that can even rescue from the nights of gloom.
Embrace me O rising sun for I know there is light!
Ever behold the branches raised up high to heaven
Like a humble sunflower with the sun at its sight
For there is a Life-Giving Tree in curse-free Eden!
Faded are the silver clouds that tainted my blue skies,
Gone are the shadows that roamed through the woods night and day,
All I know is that my heart is no more cold as ice
And my dreams are free with nothing to cause it dismay.
Past are the years when reason was exchanged for madness,
Past are the times when I was convinced that right was wrong,
Now is forever when I can live with no distress
For doctrines may have made me frail but God made me strong.
In my youth, discovered I the wisdom of old age,
Though this generation is full of philosophies
That made educated sinners and radicals rage,
For in the Eyes of the Wise soft blossoms never cease.
Embrace me O ripe golden fields ready for harvest!
Harvest be upon the crops and let them multiply
These are the years when strength must be stretched to its fullest
Or else the harvest time shall rot, leaving the rest die.
