Resting in the knowledge that I am God's.

Rays of golden sunlight
warming my face
a hallowed presence

The bird's song,
trickling sweetness into my soul
a triumphant benediction

The blossom-laden trees above
sheltering my spirit
a mighty chapel

The gentle rustling of verdant leaves
hand of God on my heart
a silent promise

reminding me...
He has never left
and never will

really beautiful, clean simplicity, great choice of words - inspires a real sense of peace and calm in reading it.

Thank you Rauna. This one is my favourite! Funnily enough this was inspired by the warmth of the sun coming in through my window at work one day- but the whole "setting" was based on the place where I got married - a beautiful, peaceful chapel in the woods - so many moments of my past and present intermingled together in that feeling of absolute calm! Glad you enjoyed it! Stay in peace.
