"This One who is Life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen Him, and now we testify that He is the One who is Eternal Life...." 1 John 1:2


Not where I breathe and pulse

Do I live, but

Where I believe, I live,

Yes, there, there is True Life.

The pour of grace

Fills my soul with faith

To see through the veils

Of sense and reason

To Your Revealed Word,

True Life.

With faith, my soul

Walks with bare-feet, unshod,

So that the naked skin

Feels the Ground, the Earth,

Of Your Revealed Word,

True Life.


As death feeds life, so

The death of my will

Feeds Your Will --

Your Revealed Word,

True Life.

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.
