A Stranger   

"This is the gate of the Lord,
Through which the righteous enter."
Psalm  118:20

A Stranger
Waits
 At the gate of my soul.

I ask:
"What is Your name?"

The Stranger smiles:
"My name is Peace."

With wonder,
I reply:
"Why my soul"

"Only cold stones
lay there."

The Stranger's Eyes
Look deep into my eyes:

"I ask not for your stones."

"No, only open your gate
So I will give you My Warmth."

"Yes, Warmth"

"The Warmth of my Will."

"Really, who are You?"

"I Am Who Am!"

"Your Father,
Your Brother,
Your Helper."

"I am your God."

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
