My soul searched, seeking
For something yet unborn.
At peace I was not.
Lost, ever forlorn.

Id heard of a love
Lasting to infinity.
Where do I go
To see this rarity?

Id almost died.
Then you were there!
Turn aside?
I could only stare.

You reached to me in eagerness.
Timidly I took your proffered hand
My heart was lost in an instant,
Your gaze, a command.

You showed me a cup, blood red
Filled to overflow,
And sweet nourishing bread.
Take, drink, swallow,
For the journey is long, You pled.

Heart in my heart
Deep to my deep
Sweet fragrance of desire
And I nevermore to weep.

Heavenly communion
Kindled fire
Pleasant conversation
Renewed with desire.

The day has faded
The lily is past bloom.
Ever left,
The scent in the room.

Filled with thanksgiving,
I joyfully proclaim!
Freedom and salvation
In remembrance of Your Name.

I enjoyed your poem. The "turning point" in your fourth stanza is very well done. Thanks for sharing your work.
