Something to Remember
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Phillip Phidippides
Other Poems by Phillip Phidippides

From a vast, vast, limitless, lonely place
God stretched out His hand
And thought:
What will it take
What should I make
To break the silence?

Nought answered
A tear fell
And became a vast, watery world

The die was cast
The bloom, the blast of nature, science, theology, cosmology
Had begun in the tenderest, Holy moment

In deep darkness
Deep loneliness 

I, too, am familiar with that darkness
That loneliness
That shroud
For I was made in His image

What a privilege to recreate the moment
The ambience
The deep soul yearning
The cataclysmic instant when my Maker
Absolutely consumed with love and need
Made me.

Not only did HE make us, but He made us so that our "core" would last forever in Heaven with Him IF we believe and receive the salvation provided by Christ Jesus! That's the most tremendous truth there ever was!!!!!

I was also in the darkness until Jesus shone the light of truth over me. It is definitely a privilege to know Him- to REALLY KNOW Him.

Nice poem.

Ah, yes indeed. Let there be words of praise from the heart of loneliness springing forth toward His light

About the Poet
Born and raised and live in Kentucky but I wear shoes most of the time. Nearing retirement and looking forward to spending more time with my wife of 36 years and our wonderful daughter and son-in-law. Have worked in the medical profession for over 30 yrs. Lots of changes! Started writing poetry after my father passed away in 2006. My sister passed away at age 50 and it has been a joy to help guide her five precious children and now we have six great-nieces and great-nephews. I am the guardian for my handicapped brother and my wife and I arrange for his 24 hr care. In reality, Willy's simple faith and absolute inexhaustible supply of unconditional love are probably the inspirational source for most of my poetry. He and I have easily watched more than 2,000 episodes of Mister Rogers together! "But a cheerful heart has a continual feast." He has a continual feast and is more than willing to share! If the world could look through his compassionate/non-judgmental eyes, this would be a much nicer place! (I have actually been posting on this site for a few years but a technological glitch erased me.)
