An Experience Of His Grace


'Twas a night, of shadows,
I walked alone, through a misty breeze,
There were howls and cries,
Of fear, that were not for me to cease;
There, I saw, my brothers in darkness were forlorn,
For days, would they mourn and weep,
And of pain, was not known,
For they lived in miseries deep;
Their plight was of utter fright,
Which I remember, to this day,
They were of the broken might,
And in darkness, they lay;
They would roam the sorrowful plains,
Where rivers were of tears,
And, of mourns, was the rain,
Where life, was but a dreadful fear;
There, I stood, with a broken heart,
Cried, 'O Lord! What hast Thee done,
Is this Thy wish, on their part,
Of this, hope, they hast now none.'
For days, months and years long,
There came no answer, no reply,
And tears, made a lamenting song,
To me, now, joy was but a lie;
With fervor, I prayed,
Uniting the day, with night,
And hope, was, in me, unmade,
As none an answer, came in sight;
There my faith, was slowly lost,
Life felt, like was dreamt,
And, miserable, was I, but most
Was felt void, felt empt;
But, then, there fell on me, Divine a grace,
The Supreme, made reply,
There filled He, in me joy,
And, lit up, of these plains sorrowful, the darkened sky;
There was heard His voice Divine, 'Cry not, my son,
For thy brothers, dost not suffer in vain,
They shalt reach higher realms,
And on them, shalt be, of benediction, a rain,
But thou hast the best of a heart,
Where now shalt I reside,
With open arms, shalt I take thou,
Onto my side.'
With this, reigned on me,
His little, great part,
And, for my brothers, I was in glee,
For on them, was love of His Heart.
There returned, my faith,
And, there was but none a tear,
Of these many a sorrowful wraith,
There was none a fear.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
