The Heart I Felt
I woke and prayed like many a day
For Light and Love to grow and stay
Then passed a dark and tangled fight
Where on a roof perched the night
But then three chickens and the Doves
Dared peak inside to remind me of Love.
And oh! It was there before and after -
A simple ray from Heaven's rafter.
And tears again did fill my eyes
As the sun rose in cloud parted skies.
Perhaps, somehow, all will be alright.
