Poem - You Went to Find God and Thought of Me

Updated on January 13, 2011

Poem - Thank You

Someone I've never met flew to Jerusalem and while there bought me a Star of David and a Rosary...

On the wings of a dream
You floated
In the search for meaning
You remained devoted
While fulfilling your aim
You thought of me
I possessed the cross of faith
And now have a star and a rosary
A presence sight unseen
You were just my friend’s mother
But you reached out to me
And touched me as no other
From Ishmael and Isaac
And a belief in Allah
You brought me to Abraham
And braided God’s Aria
The message to each of us
Of which we alone shall hear
Where once was confusion
I sense clarity is near
I pray for you now
As I did in the past
Your gifts I will always cherish
And will keep until the last

      Deborah,

      Thank you and you can be as redundant as you wish when it comes to making me happy ok?!? Ha... truly I appreciate your comments.

      Not to be redundant, but this poem, and the sentiment that inspired it, are lovely.

      Namaste.

      Thank you Nellieanna and Maven,

      It was amazing to receive a Star of Davis and a Rosary from a Muslim who traveled to Jerusalem. Everytime I think about it I wonder why the world can't be more like her...

      Lovely, lovely, lovely. Not only the beautiful poem but more, the beautiful spirit behind them - or should I say, beautiful spirits? Hers and yours. It's so touching to be thought about by someone who is on his or her own pilgrimage.

      She shared a gift with you and you shared a poem with us. That giving-train just keeps on rolling. Thanks for the simple and elegant poem.

      Thank you b.

      I'd receive the gifts a couple of weeks ago and was wanting to say something but it finally hit me. One of her family members saw it and they said she would love it.

      Thank you for the that.

      The woman who brought the gifts has not seen this yet... maybe in a couple of weeks... I hope she like it...
