~~~Pray Tell~~~

by Barbara MacDonald (writer), CANADA , June 29, 2012

Credit: unknown
A prayer in its simplest definition is merely a wish turned Godward...

This is an older poem I wrote around a year ago...but is one of my favorites...in many ways it becomes prayer like ...often the spiritual side of me is reflected in what I write...



~~~PRAY TELL~~~

If I should come here,

And watch you drenched in the rain

Will you sing for me?

Will you echo the sentiments

Of my beating heart?...

Will you hold me when I

Need the caress of comfort

When a dream dies

When life knocks me

To my knees?...

Do you know the courage

It takes for me to even

Let you touch my joy

And sorrow...

It is real

Opened and broken by

LIFE...

Always Hopeful

That a new day

Brings the beauty

Of rebirth

Of unspoken eminence

Dreams manifested

Through love...

Bring me the sun

My Beloved...

Gift me with

Serenity...

Open my heart as

Only the vision of

You in my soul's

Eye can do...

Tranquility to my essence ...

My Lifeblood...

AMEN...

Barb…I can feel the sincerity in your prayer...I can say for sure that nobody can write with so much of intense necessity unless somebody very strongly believe in prayer...Each word so perfectly placed to match the essence of prayer. Your poem matches your undeletable faith…

“Do you know the courage

It takes for me to even

Let you touch my joy

And sorrow...

It is real

Opened and broken by

LIFE.....”

Simply an amazing expression…It reflects your soul…Barb certainly one of your best poem

Barb life in its largeness carries lot many deformities but certainly that is not the end reflection of life…we all rise above these deformities. Undeletable faith can only make people to form or reform and in the serenity of your thoughts I pick up a gleam of hope which many refuse to see and they just drag on in life…Your poem hold that Vision…It is very enlightening…It is very empowering…It is very stimulating…Never… Never…never give up your faith…The one who holds the faith holds the life.

Yes Uttam I agree with you...this week has in many ways shown me this...I am so happy to have had time with Dee and seeing her rising above all she has to deal with...it inspires me and does my heart good...I treasure every minute I have to spend with her now..even more so because in many ways it is a miracle and a reflection of what prayer can bring us...my heart is filled with awe...and I will never lose faith Uttam...yes, I may stumble but I will always rise again with God's grace...Thank you...
