“Candle Light Prayer” – Poetry

I come before You humbly

As the candle flickers low

With all my imperfections

In this land of frozen snow.

 

Insanity arising

As we play the ageless war –

I come before You humbly

As the ancients did before.

 

You Whose heart is endless,

You of stained glass crystal mind

Who pens the perfect novel

Of a time outside of time,

 

Look kindly on the innocent

The plants and birds who sing,

The child and the warrior

The servant and the king –

 

The victim, the perverted

The lost and, yes, the found

The unicorns, the fairies

And the life deep underground –

 

The souls who have been fractured

By the cruelest acts we know,

The ones who’ve not been born yet

And can’t give a “yes” or “no”.

 

Thank you for the strengths we win

From struggle and from strife,

And for the ink and pages

Without which we’d not know life –

 

Thank you for the silence

And the music of the spheres,

And for the angel-in-disguise

You sent to guide us here.

 

I come before You humbly

As the candle flickers low –

Trembling at the vastness

Of Infinity unknown.

 

Phoenixes arising

As we dance to Ariel’s Roar,

And now I tend the fire

As the ancients did before.
