The following poem is an excerpt from a book of poetry I am writing. It is nearly finished and I am currently in the process of finding a publisher. In fact, I was invited to prepare a book proposal a short time ago and have done so. No decision has been made yet as to whether it fits their current vision. Prayers appreciated on this. Thanks!
Soul Kisses From My Savior
You introduced me to my heart
The day that I accepted yours.
I know now that true and lasting joy
Was never before mine
Until that day I looked into your eyes
And found my very soul
Was looking back at me
In the pure love and grace
I saw reflected there.
You touched my hand
And led me to the place
That I’d been seeking all my life
Without ever knowing what I’d missed.
Suddenly, this secret of our love
Is one that I can no longer keep
And so I freely share it
Every chance I get.
A most amazing consequence
Is now so clear to me.
For every time I blow a kiss
You blow me two of yours!
