 Poetic Verses

songs of joy


sometimes the longing itself is a kiss
as warm as a child held embraced
sometimes the memory of someone we miss
is as sweet as touching their face

he called us to leave our dear ones behind
for the purpose of complete devotion
a promise that only in losing we find
a love that is more than emotion

he called us to follow no matter the price
and not knowing the road leads us home
the journey could seem like mere sacrifice
like dreamers at night time we roam

have you cried from loneliness when looking back
at the comfort lost in yesterday
you will find that even such lack
turns to gain on this transforming way

sometimes the longing serves as a reminder
that going backwards will always destroy
that those sowing seeds for him in tears
shall reap harvest in songs of joy
