Over rocks in darkness I stumble

•  Just last night my loving God
           >> View all 2

A prayer for someone who has had it rough in life, and before his last breath, turns back to God. It takes the symbolic form of the vessels used for bread and wine in church, an allusion to the last supper.....

Over rocks in darkness I stumble


 


Over rocks in darkness I stumble


To these mountains returning


With a deep heart weeping


To say these words again:


When like ravages of thunders


My life bangs against the rocks


Shattered limbs tearing asunder


In a world devastated


Devoid of solace


Dear God


Am still


The wonder


You delicately made


In your divine semblance.


 


May each bit fall in your gentle arms


Waiting in the sacred silence


Of peace unsurpassed


Where promises


Long made


Of peace


Everlasting


Come


Into


Being


In the


Silence


That lies


Beyond the


Transient transit


To eternal immortality.
