Lifted to Love ~a poem by Linda Willows


Photograph by Grafix

Gift me wonder,
return me to raw.
Lift me to Love,
till my garden spills awe.

Let nothing remain,
that separates this heart
from the only view,
that we are none apart.

Grace me, let me bow
all the tears of life,
give mercy and might,
for a chance to end the strife.

Tender the soft,
the gentle dear clutch;
this gratitude, God,
your endless Love’s touch.
