Beatitude

Praying

In your embrace is solitude,

Your living word, my daily food.

My time with You is time well spent.

With grace and mercy You present

Your love, You wish me to be wooed.

 

I’m filled with more than gratitude

And as such I can thus conclude

You’ve changed my heart, I am content:

Vicissitude

 

This transformation I exude

Has humbled me. Your magnitude

Bespeaks Your will; Your Son You sent,

It’s clear redemption’s Your intent.

Your promise brought me certitude:

Beatitude

  2. I agree with the other comments. There is a peacefulness about this poem. I particularly like the positioning of “Has humbled me. Your magnitude”
    I like the 2 contrasting ideas side by side. It is very neat way of making your point. Lovely.
