A Poem: Let Me Truly Blossom
Blossoms are beautiful, but they serve a higher purpose...
~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Let me truly blossom---A flowering to You my God, to be all I am able in holy or humble sod.
Let fear not assail me, let peace show forth my love, to speak even in silence the rapture I knew above.
Let me truly blossom---nor fear a consequence, when to Your home I hasten and make my way on hence.
Not as a faded petal, nor pristine blossom new, but as a fruited harvest may I return to You.
