An Epiphany

             An Epiphany

It was the dead of night when I awoke
To something at an inconvenient time,
To slight the urgency, though, seemed a crime,
I waited, then a voice from somewhere spoke.
When all about was quiet, calm, and still,
And distant angels seemed to hover near,
The darkness swallowed up the doubt and fear
That stood between my spirit and His will.
You are forgiven as you so forgive,
Receiving mercy as you’re merciful,
Of self, be nothing to be bountiful,
And dead to earth before you ever live.
    The morning sun arose, then cast a light
    Not seen before the visit of this night.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
