My deeply bowed head… ~a poem by Linda Willows

Owomanf255050David Galstyan

Your Love does drape and washes my heart,
It offers life, where once did depart,
the hopes and dreams of most humble start,
even my faith, oh dear Lord, this deep part.

Honor restores with my deeply bowed head,
this journey, this world, how it turned, how it bled.
Give pardon and mercy, release Love’s embed,
come through my garden, Lord – sweep days ahead.

If Love does not reign, all shall wither and die,
each creature, each mortal; we will rise in a cry.
Help find the cloak that would warm all our souls,
and prompt all Hearts in most sacred ex-toll.

  3. Your words moved my heart as they danced happily within my spirit with a renewing power, that refeshed my whole! I felt the life in your words deeply as i have been there before and will again before my life ends here, but His forgiving grace makes me to never worry because you and i, and many others are His, we belong to him and no one can ever separate us from His loving hands! The blend of image and words make an exceedingly wonderful impact upon my day! And its one of those feelings that one never wants to let go of! God bless and thanks for the blessing dear Linda!

I hope you are doing well and only taking some time out … your gracious presence is sorely missed … sending you gentle hugs, healing thoughts and much, much love always. ~ Love, Julie xoxox
