The Creator sat, with outstretched hand;
And here the miracle occurred--
Though borne from nothing, a new soul stirred.
Into the empty space He blew,
Igniting the flame of life anew.
The fire raged inside His palm,
Yet under His gaze it soon did calm.
It thirsted only for the sight
Of its Maker, the Being of Light.
Yet Father knew His new child’s life
Would stray as it was tested with strife.
Beaming with love, yet filled with woe,
He looked at the ethereal glow
And whispered softly to spark,
“My child, My child, beware of the dark,
It longs to steal you far away,
So remember to look up and pray.
Though, in your life you’ll soon forget
These words at your birth, yet, do not fret.
For I shall guide you through the storms
And love you through both praises and scorn.
As you lament, I will as well;
Know my love alone has conquered Hell.”
When the soul’s mortal birth arrived
Its Creator’s promise still survived.
As for the soul’s eternal state,
By trusting in God, it will do great.
