POVERTY OF A HEART
Poverty of a heart
Poverty of a spirit and soul,
Body destined to return
Earth decay as gravity continually pulls down,
Youthful beauty and strength quickly fade.
And yet, the inner heart cries out for more
An illusive wealth missing
A rich treasure sensed just out of reach,
But without a hint of true heavenly understanding.
Then comes a whisper in the night
The tug of a dream
Gentle cooing of turtle doves in the day time
As an honest lover wisely woos
With tenderness, gentleness and a soft touch
The lover of our soul draws near
In complete openness
In total compassionate kindness,
A firm hand cups the head and mind
Another wraps about the chest
And a sweet, sweet kiss of truth is given,
Truth about love and life is peacefully made known.
Secrets from the very beginning of creation are made clear
Wisdom and power of creation settle upon the inner mind
Even the revelation of living Words written on pages;
As stark and beautiful butterflies on an ordinary flower,
Intimate friendship made into sparkling jewels.
The comfort of such fellowship warmly blankets
Pure white linens cover the common nakedness,
Proper clothing of the spirit and soul,
A clear mind and a pure heart are born and grow quickly
The love of our God precisely covers
The peace of Messiah Yeshua encloses, fills to overflowing
As eternal riches are now made known
Divine mysteries unfolded,
Every human need satisfied in Him
The yearning and longing in poverty of spirit
Transformed into priceless wealth and abundance.
