Aphradere: God's Our Emerald Compass

Our hearts of love is but a fire and ice I can’t suffice It’s a kind of love, a type thereof, with a high price A price, I, unfortunately, cannot completely afford Not to mention all these sick emotions that I hoard It’s a choir unprepared, unrehearsed It’s our secrets, somewhat dispersed Alas, my darling, I’ve done you wrong Burn away the remorse from my tongue I have a couple of awful scars that won’t heal Our secret verses in song-form are so unreal Let God act like your kind nurse to restore you to blessed health, Restoring grace to your life-long verse with wellness and wealth Delight douses my weary soul all over again, making me happily blind Midnight's might kept me with no clarity in mind, left me left behind Shake away the dust from off your shoes of sulky filth and clearly see You are my daily muse, a muse that will set me free, hoping extremely It’s truly a tragedy in total reverse It’s a gem-glowing gift or a curse Cast away my tears in the ocean Drown out the constant commotion Persevere… Have no fear… Shed no tear… I am here… God is near… Have so cheer… I’ll hold you dear… Hang on to hope's chandelier… And your boat, I shall steer Through the waters of Aphradere Through the waters of Aphradere Through the waters of Aphradere Through the waters that draw near That draw near us, I pray, yet I fear But, He says fear no evil today and tomorrow Today will be our tomorrow, no plans of sorrow As we pass through, hand in hand, The waters of Aphradere and sand Our feet buried under, head above God is looking after us, my love, And your boat, I shall steer Hang on to hope's cheer I’ll hold you dear… Wear joy's gear God is near… I am here… Shed no tear… Have no fear… Persevere… From beginning to end, my lone dear God will end your horrid, tragic fear It’s quite a miracle and a curse that we remain here… In the waters of Aphredere, waterfalls do appear, But, with His sacred, glory-engulfed guidance, He will lead us through the waters of Aphradere He will drown it all away with His lovely radiance

A heart's cry, heard by God. Often, love comes in a stream, not one at a time. I have made the wrong choice in similar situations. Yet, God hears when we repent, or wish recovery & healing to another human. Moreover, ones who were so open with us -- H E A L I N G begins everytime we speak our hearts. Amen * shalom, shalom. Anil
