Thankful Thursday

Oh! Beautiful spirit!
Let your light shine down upon me,
let you wash away my worries and fear;
daffodils and tulips bloom
with your glorious essence.

By God!
I long to escape the prison of my fears,
my jealousies and my ego;
I long to lose myself
in the shores along the coast,
or the waves of the Great Lakes;
the sands of the deserts,
the golden waves of wheat.

By God,
I long to escape these lonely people,
these people that are always sad and offended.
I long to travel in your intoxicating spirit;
a drunken frenzy of your love and guidance,
and feel the strength of my being in my heart.

Yet, although I am sick of mortal selfishness,
I see your light in my daily life:
as I walk the winding sidewalks
in your warm, beautiful sun
or in your cold tears that kiss my face
when the end of winter seems too long.
I see you while I look in the mirror,
my body slowly returning to strength
and the beauty you have bestowed upon me
with silk and cotton that accentuates curves.

With a candle in my hand,
others use matches or lamps--
in the dark of night or in the shadows of life,
sometimes we find what we long for and seek.

You are the essence of everything,
I love to sing you praises;
I love to celebrate you by living.
Yet as I sing, I stand silent
with the pain of wishing in my heart.
