"And the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their Shepherd. He will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." Revelation 7:17

Ever present, my protection.
When I'm lost, gives me direction.
Appearing once in the night,
Reassurance soothes my fright.
Silence, gracefulness, and calm,
Stretching out a flawless palm.
Shielding me from this great brilliance,
Shadows danced in mad resilience.
Disappearing when I blink,
Watching as the shadows shrink.
Never to show up again,
Yet always there to ease my pain.

"Try to learn to breathe deeply,
really to taste food when you eat,
and when you sleep, really to sleep.
Try as much as possible to be
wholly alive, with all your might,
and when you laugh, laugh like hell,
and when you get angry, get good
and angry. Try to be alive. You will
be dead soon enough."
William Saroyan

Wow. I was seriously awed at this poem. Please write more!
