Radiant Love

May 7, 2011

~
I was desperate
Lonely and afraid of death
Death is when no one sees you
Acknowledges you
Will look at you with kind eyes
Or speak your name with great love
~
I began to seek
The terror began to leave
I tasted freedom
~
My friends were fading away
I felt loneliness coming
This poor man called out for help
The Lord heard my cry
~
He rescued me from distress
Looking back I see angels
Attending in the darkness
I found sweet refuge
~
I tasted something
A mystery I explored
I found love seeking
~
A radiant love
Touched the core of my being
And introduced me to joy
I come in silence
I awake each day seeking
In awe and hungry to know
~
Joy’s at the center
Love is what’s radiated 
Peace is the result
Hope for the future is certain
Desire for the truth drives me
~
Fifty years of seeking
Sixty-nine years of living
One thing I know to be true
God loves all people
