Please Give me Wings

Wash my heart and make it clean
Remove the grime from where it's been 

Take my idle hands make them yours
Use them to open holy doors

My cracked lips long to sing your praise
Be my Mistro the rest of my days  

Guide my calloused feet along your path
I wish to know Love and not your wrath

Take my arms place them around the poor
Help me realize I need less not more

Plant your precious thoughts in my mind
Change me from selfish, make me kind

let me see your face with my eyes
Remove my ignorance make me wise

Apart from you I cannot be whole
Thank's for this reconditioned soul

One day my life will end, I know it's true
Please give me wings, so I can fly to you

Thanks for coming back to read my poem Kim.

The last couplet especially is a delight to the soul waiting to fly away in joy and peace... You are elegantly depicting THE ART of DYING. In fact, it's the painful moments attached to our body that makes dying so terrible; but it's part of the holy circle of life we should not fear. anymore, thanks to the Lord of Mercy. Great work, Rick! Have a nice week! Hanitra
