The Gift

A gift from God - this poetry
opening to the light
Chambers of a silent heart 
emerging from the night

Spin a tapestry of words -
colorful and clear
Pastel shades, soft and whole
embroidered on a living soul
kindly without fear.

You have His gift
and put your finger
gently on my heart
where I felt His touch and
cried with joy.

Words on paper lined up true
so powerfully new
like the sun who climbs in strength
out of the night
making glad tomorrows
and eternities to come
taking us by His words where
it won't be “Too Late”
