Listen to poem:
Blessing A blessing is more Than some words on a page Or to follow a sneeze Or break a leg for the stage It's more than just sentiment It is conscious decision To send love and kindness With a purpose and vision Not a throwaway niceness It's so deep and profound A blessing reclaims So much more hallowed ground Not a poem with boundary No beginning or end It is never constrained It is more than just friend It's the ripples of change In the pool filled with love Spilling out when we cast A request-stone above A blessing has value Even more than a prayer It loves, lingers, leads us It's a heaven-ward stair To invoke down a blessing Is to open earth space And flood it with goodness Laced with Spirit and grace Like an angelic whirlwind Where the atmosphere alters.. It's the arm of a lover When your step forward falters It connects and restores It has holiness prowess Like it says on the tin; It dispels all the darkness So reach your hand high And call down that blessing It can only bring truth, No fake-news second guessing Draw the gift from a well Never known for it's dryness All the thirst to dispel With a cup from his Highness So.. May your life be renewed May the darker days dwindle May your eyes see new Hope May your healing rekindle May your voice find it's place. May you outshine the shadows. May you nurture that seed So a mighty, strong oak grows May your neighbours be friends. May your generous spirit Be a lighthouse of hope For the boats harboured in it. May your journey be fruitful. May your harvest be plenty. May your storehouse be shared Where the hungry soul's empty. May the places you walk Find your presence refreshing For we all have a choice To bring heavenly blessing.
