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.
