~~~~Concludes the poem "Dark Angel"
Speak to me in many waters
Wash away the dirt and grime
Lay my body upon the alter
Transform me to another time
May I be in line _ the first
To press you palm upon my breast
Quench this dry unending thirst
To calm my impatient heart to rest
Alas!, You heed my being
Offer me of your embrace
For Your face is of my seeing
Of its form my fingers trace
Hands of worn callous strong
Wrap me in salvations grace
Hear thy name _ as put to song
For on this virtue, my faith is based.
~~~For my Grandma 11152019
I think I can cry now.....
