the very air


the very air

darkness reigns
all around me
i close my eyes
so i can see
a light that shines
so intensely
from way deep down inside me

a power hums
inside my blood
it overtakes me
like a flood
it leaves me breathless
in my gut
on broken splintered legs

agape my mouth
no words i speak
aloud a cry
my song to keep
into the stars my heart does reach
as tender arms enfold me

the thrill i feel
is long and sweet
with every call
my heart does beat
i lift my hands
in sweet retreat
my Fathers love surrounds me

it lifts me high
when i am low
it has no boundaries
i know
His heart is soft
His strength is shown
in the very air around me

this is amazing and exactly how i feel. another beautifully written poem about our Lord and life and living.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
