Goddess of dark, Goddess of light
Give ear to my call
I who dwell in your sight
Mother of all
Giver of light
Raise me up, let me not fall.

Daughter of mystery, Soverign of the Spirit
Hear my prayer this night
Help me not to fear it.
Embodiment of light
You who dwell so near it
Help me now in my fight.

Lady of heaven, Giver of love
Fill me with your power
Sent from above
Hear me this hour
Fill me with your love
As I climb life's tower.

I call now on your true name Great Isis
Mistress of the sea
Our help in times of crisis
Send your warmth and love to me
Cleanse me of my vices
And set my spirit free.

You do have a wonderfully romantic and passionate way of expressing yourself... and it's nice to know that our 'down under' friend is appreciated around here... She deserves it for sure...

Thank you all my friends. . . your words have indeed made my day!

I do not have enough lines to thank you all individually, but there are a few.

pFF--You mean I don't already?  And yes, I do know the way to the heart. . .

whiskey--Thank you for your words, I am indeed humbled.

cougaryouth--I only write from the heart, if you do the same, your words will shine.

Nan--My words reflect my life my friend. . .

Isis--I am so happy to count you as my friend and my kindred spirit. . . thank you for all you've done, and I only hope that I have done the same
