You - the Presence in My Presence. Monday's Inspiration 53, a Soulful Offering to Shauna L Bowling
You -- who give redolence to the tulips; hide Yourself,
In the priceless sacrifice of loving, come!
You -- who dry my tears in sleep; kiss my cheeks
On the awakening of each new dawn, come!
They ask me who You are … how can I explain
Our silent conversations? You are the Presence
In my presence; the unseen breathing in my breath;
You feed, with longing, the fire of passion in my Heart.
You have woven my shadows with Your hands;
Yet burnt the robes of my impediments,
And thrown them all away. It is Your Light
Which adorns me in my nakedness.
O my sweet tenderness; my beautiful One!
You cause Troy’s Helen to pay homage;
Queen Nefertiti to bow in humility;
Both my sorrows and rhapsodies, lie in Your mercy.
O Love, You who weave, in the blooming sunrise of my todays’;
Rise in the blossoming fragrance of my tomorrows’, Come!

You - My Everything, Come!
You – who gave allure to the Egyptian Queens;
Kissed my lips with Your chalice of good wine, come!
You – a silent comforter in my Heart; a scenic nature
Whispering sweet melodies at every moment, come!
I see Your ferns and foliage; sunsets and awakening dawns;
Your perennial stars twinkle, reminding me of Love.
You are in the honeysuckle and the stamen of sunflowers;
The Unseen Breath through which I breathe.
My life and death are all the same to me,
For as long as we are together in this relationship,
I’ll never perish. Without You, my anxiety is intense;
With You in me, what’s there to fear?
You – who gave birth to my darkness and my Light;
Paved the way to glory from a shadowed past, come!
