Draw Truth Near

Allow the rays to paint your heart

And brush out darkness from its frame;

Embellish  hues with loving art

And give to feeling brilliant name.

Courageous palette  birthed in light,

Banish shadows, sideline  fear;

Revelation,  bring heart sight,

Sketch the path to draw Truth near.

Grieving


You’ve wept until your eyes are puffed

In turtle-shell disguise,

Your face is red, your cheeks are stained

With tears that trace your cries.

You hang your head as sorrow deep

Weighs your visage down;

You’ve cried heart dry so many times,

It weeps without a sound.

But you don’t see that in your grief

Your blooms are opening wide;

Rich beauty lies within your pain,

Allurement which can’t hide.

And as you grieve, the Master of

Your heart is drawing near;

He wipes your eyes, and as you cry,

True beauty washes clear.
