Compassion smiles down Like stars winking through the cosmos Lifting spirits and warming hearts Coloring the soul in a tune of light indigo Hope whispering across my thoughts Laughing love through my soul Compassion lights my heart Warm and wise, welcoming your thoughts As they sift through the moments Gentling my naked emotions Healing me with a kiss, soft breath Lingering on my fair skin Compassion holds my dreams In the curve of their teasing vibrancy Echoing a prayer of gentle praise Soothing my longing for serenity that frees On the sunshine beams of music With wings, free as the tendency to believe Compassion caresses my memory With moonlight hopes that thrill Awakening my inner senses, breaking through Wishes, worries, waste from wild Faith – faith so alive it heals the hurts Of a past which reminds you of remorse Compassion burns like fire Through the soul who knows Passion and desire from the depths Of a joy that brings about true yearning For kindness that absorbs Sorrow, angst, discouragement Compassion thrills the sweet spirit Of one who believes in the brilliance Of a sunlight moment expressing itself With gentleness and carefree Sentiments that erase all the worst Shading the thoughts with tenderness Compassion breaks the promise Of the one who vows to leave behind The grief that troubles the mind And brings mourning to the very soul With the assurance that there is relief In the elation that comes alive in tomorrow Compassion is the breath of love That breathes hope, faith and inspiration Through the soul who knows God is alive and wise and sure More brilliant than ever before And He knows… our deepest yearnings As He pours out blessings across our souls Malachi 3:10 KJV - Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
