The Day Is Complete

7 Jan


I rest tonight in confident hope

That dawn will announce new
life throughout creation.

That all worry and fearful thoughts
will be surrendered to the sound
of Love’s heart beating in the

That the last vision before sleep will
be the nearness of Love remembered
in the faces of those I cherish.

That all prayers whispered as night
descends will be gathered into the
Sacred Spirit pulsing through the

That night will silently slip away
as morning light softens the
edges of her black cape.

I welcome darkness, old friend,
who gently tucks me into the
embrace of the Mystery beyond
explanation or understanding.

I sleep in trust to awake
in gratitude.

    Absolutely magnificent. I think I will print this and keep it bedside and read before turning out the light.

    Thank you.

    When a book of your poetry is published, and I pray that it is, I want to be first in line to receive a personally autographed copy…..Jim
