A Promise for Faith

in the dusky lamp light
           with the wee hours ticking past
the sound of gentle twittering coos
     and mellow cries,
 entice thoughts to the miracle given
    rocking half-asleep swaddled in my arms,

        in the converging years
when times of strife and sorrow
    will scrutinize us
 and moments of felicity
              and exultation will inspire us,
 let the promise be remembered
       that love from above
brought forth a beautiful soul,

holding your petite hand
           sheathed by my age-touched,
    a meek prayer lifts,
the capacity for love
     measures to eternity guided by grace,
  an extraordinary gift
   perpetually in the serene places of the heart.
