Updated on July 27, 2013

Silent surrender

Kisses of another day

Racing through my soul

With each heartbeat yet unheard

Calling me once more to you

      How I know this feeling. Beautiful and not surprisingly so as you have such a wondrous way of painting such passionate feelings. Angels are on the way this morning. ps

      I'll never be able to fully comprehend how it is you can say so much in such few words! In awe, always.

      This should have been in Godspell. Remember Day by Day? It gives me the same sort of feeling.
