The rain stopped falling today.
All of the clouds seemed to have gone away.
The sun shone bright and clear;
The dew sparkled with glistening, radiant cheer.
Upon each flower, a smile and a touch of laughter appeared.
A song came singing amidst the wind so cool and calm,
Making me remind the view of the pristine palm.
Why then Lord, do I feel such despair?
Feeling overloaded with worldly cares?
Why then O Lord, are my eyes filled with much sorrow and tears?
My heart aches for comfort,
My mind for peaceful refuge through the power of prayer.
Though I have perceived all the beauty around me,
My spirit cries out loudly;
“O Lord I am empty and bare.”
Hoping to hear your sweet voice once again,
I plead in travail.
“Lord cleanse me from all my sins,
and let your Divine light enter in;
Remember me, as I Remember you,
Make me pure and sweet as you.”
Your sweet, forgiving love flows like a river.
Breaking all the barriers of my lonely fear.
Always be with me and hold my soft hands,
So that I can sleep peaceful, on thy shoulder Dear !!
