TITLE: My Day of all Days

Never the sun shone so clearly
Never the sky seemed so bright
Never my heart was so cheery
As the day when I first saw the Light.

For so long I had aimlessly wandered
Though the road of my travels was wide
On the issues of life seldom pondered,
Didn’t see any need for a Guide,
Felt secure in the crowd alongside.

Whenever I came to obstructions
I would follow the surge of the throng—
Surely someone up front had instructions!—
I was mindlessly carried along;
What if those in the lead were all wrong!

One day I encountered a Preacher—
Though a man, He was surely much more—
A Master, a Rabbi and Teacher—
Was amazed I’d not met Him before—
He’s the Way, Truth and Life’s Guarantor.

As He spoke on, my soul was uplifted,
My heart filled with exuberant praise—
This sheep that had aimlessly drifted
So long lost in the world’s wanton ways—
What a day!! ‘Twas my day of all days!!

Never the sun shone so clearly
Never the sky seemed so bright
Never my heart was so cheery
As the day when I first saw the Light.

Your poem has such a beautiful cadence that I want to set it to music! It truly captures the joy that is flowing out of a singing heart!

Loved the line "What if the leader were wrong" and of course the only right conclusion would be when "I saw the light." Great poem with a profound message. Congratulations on your EC. Loren
