Poets’ Corner: One glance

28th Sep 2018

One glance from You I seek,
To lift me from myself,
To raise me from my heavy thoughts
That tempt me away from You.

One smile, one look of softness
Will melt away my gloom,
Will transform me to heights, envious,
All from the sweetness of knowing You.

In desparateness, I yearn Your Company,
Chosen only for those You Yourself have selected,
A friendship with no conditions
Or boundaries,
But true loyalty all the way through.

If I please You, You gift me more.
If I let You down, You turn away for a moment,
Only to appeased instantaneously
By a sincere, sorry note from my heart.

O Gracious One!
Don’t ever abandon me to myself,
For then I am lost, irrevocably lost,
To the enemy of the truth.
For then the further I descend,
The hopeless my state will become.

O Lofty One!
Don’t let this fear come true!
But submerge me in Your love,
Felt solely through knowing You.
