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
