Refuge

Refuge

A Poem by JennyinCO


He has poured Himself over me
Like a drink offering dripping hope,
Filling my wounds with beautiful healing light.

He weaves and ties the strands
Threefold strong, snugged up tight,
To make for me
An inpenetrable fortress,
Towering high above the awful circumstance,
A place where I can lay my head
In this, His warmest refuge,
His holy embrace.

And I know no other quiet
Want no other bed
Than one where His peace has permeated,
Leaving behind Him the fragrance of love itself
Like a signature, everywhere
Bringing calm.

this leaves no doubt of your absolute faith and love for your savior. i am not a religious person, but i can admire your conviction and inner strength, well done!

last stanza is my favorite...but this really is a passionate love poem...and after he is gone, the love is so strong it lingers on forever.

and bringing calm...jesus or lover...either way...the love felt is spiritual.

the poem has such strong imagery.
