Hold Him (Vanity Poem)

HOLD HIM

Cover Him in the evening; evenings turn eternal dawns;

Offer Him the mantle; the mantle of your heart shall adorn His altar.

Then the Lord and the soul shall embrace in their secret chamber;

Their conversation full of adoring love shall last into the twilight.

Do you think such heavenly bliss shall end with your life on earth?

Or His materialized Love perpetuates into Heavenly dwelling?

Splendid splendor, intense sweetness is for those who love;

Long for them, with renewed kindling in hopeful trust,

Which overflows to be overflowed by the Divine Grace-current.

The infinite engulfing current originates and shall come back to its Source.

Prepare your soul like a flowery garden

To constantly offer an exquisite bouquet to Gardener who tends.

Everything is His labor, planted, watered, weeded, nurtured;

All given to the soul with the most endearing glimpse.

Don’t you detect His fragrance in your garden of blooms?

Don’t you feel His touch which carries your soul aloft into unknown ecstasy,

Where you never thought of, but longed for just the same?

Some time the fantasy can turn bitter, can burden, but His Grace made it sweet to swallow

And the soul is willing for love.

Don’t be afraid, even death He had conquered.

Just living and loving, most intensely, utmost, and expect nothing but the grace of the moment,

For He exist in you in every instant of thoughts.

Hold Him in your every endearing thought as He beholds you as His most precious present.

Do you have a ping list? Sometimes I don’t get to FR and I would like to catch up on your posts. If you wouldn’t mind pinging me, I’d really like that.

Thanks!

No, just start writing so-called poetry which basically contemplative writings, in May. I didn’t think of publishing them.

Thanks for the compliment.
