so I came close.
No one can hear God unless
She has prepared a bed for you.
A thousand souls hear Her call every second,
but most every one then looks into their life’s mirror and says,
“I am not worthy to leave this sadness.”
When I first heard Her courting song,
I too looked at all I had done in my life and said,
“How can I gaze into Her omnipresent eyes?”
I spoke those words with all my heart,
But then She sang again,
a song even sweeter,
and when I tried to shame myself once more from Her presence God
showed me Her compassion
and spoke a divine truth,
“I made you, dear,
and all I made is perfect.
Please come close,
