A beautiful song

Alone in the eventide

Alone in the eventide
like a caged bird
I pondered for hours
as the light shines in the gloom
of the lonely night
to authenticate the melody
of a beautiful song
veiled in my soul.
I allowed myself to fall in love
like a baby
in the arms of nature
to start all over
a new love story
to discover the passion
to intone the melody
of an untold story of life.
Like the hammer
that crumbles the rock
I endured the pains like Job
with delight
to locate something new:
a deep faith
an open heart
to link with the incarnate Word.
I overcame my pride
as His Word leapt like fire
illuminating wisdom
into my heart
with a sharp sword
of authentic truth
to embrace the gospel
inner my soul.
Wisdom is the melody
Kindness is the music
Compassion is the texture
Understanding is dynamic
A creative mind is a form
Endurance is the timbre
Love is the rhythm
to sing a beautiful song of life.
