Your Fortress

                                     From heaven to earth, my gift is yours,

                                 I wish to share my strength, my authority.

                                     As I chase, your graceful presence,

                               your heart echoes, deep in my wanting soul.

                                     My arms are open, to keep you safe,

                                 no pain or fear, shall ever come your way.

                                    you will always know, my love for you,

                                  for I will protect your soul, with my truth.

                                        I will be your shield and fortress,

                                           in you, is my love designed.

                                   I will be your lifelong friend, forever,

                           and stand by your side, through all life's trials.

                                 This Oath is my love, to give you peace,

                               its sealed in blood, for the heavens to see.

                                     Then when you open your heart,

                                 my love is there, to forever be your

                                                  fortress of life.

    An exquisite personification of heavenly words to comfort the believer. It is too bad that the masses have decided to ignore the message and deny the presence of our creator; we can see that his blessings are being withdrawn. Your poems always give much to think about John, Hope your new year iis filled with more inspiration! Luv, Elizabeth.
