Listening to every heart

Her Purpose

Tenacity and drive,
                  then soulful and in mourning,
we sense artistic severance
of a poet

in kind.

On some days, she is clarity;
                  other hours find her in scattered fractions,
a bit softer around the edges,
but puzzled at life, trying to pull pieces

She binds me to her
with awe-tight love lines, her love,
                 her faith,
even in her shattered light lines ~

to thank God for her
         would be to underline her purpose here…

to teach, and guide
              through heartache, and losses,

counting blessings, she does,
like plucking petals from a daisy’s bloom

does He love me; yes, He does
even when love lights dim

she still finds her Purpose,
gilds the lily,
scents our senses,
soothes sorrows,
lifts lives,
and prays love forward.

How fitting a tribute is this piece,
superb, inspiring, the calibre of writing that is of the elite among Passion's most passionate, just as the incredib;e writings of our dear MArtie
I love this

This is so special, Karilea....I'm thinking of Martie as I read it...with prayer.
