A Prayer For The Dying

Every day admit me
Into the portal of the
Allow me to feel
The sublime majesty of life
To know
The sanctity of relationship
To touch
The beauty of Earth
Breathe into this poor undeserving frame
An immortal telling
A lasting consequence
Give me the power
To see
To believe
To dream

seek the divine and it will be yours; the doors of divinity are always open...
another gem from your heart and pen full of serenity and acceptance.
I totally enjoyed this poem very much, it is filled with so much faith, gently penned with visions of hope for all...... Excellent in my oppion...... Bonnie
So much said so powerfully, poetically and concisely.
Maybe it's my way of seing things, but this poem seems so full of life and energy, and this would be so so great for a song! ! ! It is called 'APrayer for the Dying' but I believe it's a prayer every person would say! : -) Great job! ~~Elya Thorn~~
