Without YOU

For the heart roars with poetry when it hits a turning point… mtg

by Marites Avisado-Responte

Never do we expect
Your presence could
Bring perfect joy to
Our disheartened being and
Ease the yoke that lodges
Our heart..

Your touch lifts us to see
The beauty within us and
Your work bestows the
Magnificence of your power
As immense as your LOVE
And as infinite as your MERCY

Your words spell wisdom
Where we can lay rest and
Be assured wherever we go
Up and Down, never we have
A second thought…
They are like beacons, eternally lighted
Where nobody falters

Your gentle prod of guidance
Arms us with strength to fight the foe
And surrender not to the race
Ahead we see the victory it’s meant
As your stead beckons afar
Whether we faintly see or not
We know it’s there…

Now we reckon..
Without you, we only exist
Name is surely forgotten
Triumph possessed is left to oblivion
We are nothing but a hollow dot
A speck of dust in the vast expanse
Of the Universe….without YOU
