Sweet Blessing (poem)

Updated on June 19, 2013

Sweet blessing of the morning’s gentle dawn

Bright blossom of the glories of the day

Please teach this heart the proper words to say

So dreams and lovers’ themes may carry on

-

The winds of wonder wait to whirl away

To blissful stream where promised hope is drawn

Bright beauty which this world now waits upon

Sweet answer which a wish has sent my way

-

What use the empty scent which once I knew

Mere timeless gloom which oft would end with rain

-

How meaningless the moments I passed through

Just endless strains toward means I can’t explain

-

Now blessed am I to hold this kiss of you

And every dawn the bliss of your refrain

      Now this poem is really the basis for a great song. I loved it and the video was relaxing, beautiful and soothing. Love those beach scenes.
