For the heart roars with poetry when it hits a turning point…~mtg
by Marietta Geraldino
For you, I bravely waited when dusk seemed winning
At nights you invade my thoughts, memories were taunting
But as sure as the sun that greets me each morning
I know that you would come, so I kept on waiting.
Reset, I believe, is a gift you always bring
Wounds of broken dreams await you for healing
A chance to let go, an opportunity for forgiving
And so patiently I waited, as the hour clock is ticking.
While voices and laughter of merriment are mingling
Silence from a longing heart, deep inside is deafening
And so as the gentle call of the church bell is ringing
For you, I calmly whispered a prayer of thanksgiving.
Hope, shared by humanity, is a present you’re ushering
A new leaf for self-renewal, for new dreams I am re-starting
For peace and prosperity, a whole new future you’re offering
New Year – you’re just a moment, but from the Almighty a blessing.
