Like a Prayer

Like a Prayer

A Poem by November Gold
"

Some doors must close so that others may open...

"

 

Like a prayer sent into space

I wished for you.

I may have seen you once or even twice

But I wasn’t ready to receive you.

With the touch of your hand

I feel warmth

With the sound of your voice

I hear love.

In your eyes I learn so much

As your heart speaks volumes

About the love you have to give

And long to receive.

For so long I have felt like

I lived in a house of cards,

Just waiting for the wind to come

And bring it crashing down;

You have come along and breathed

A new breath into my lungs,

You have inspired me to rise

Up and try again at love.

Together we face fear, hand in hand

We move forward into the beauty

Of what life has to offer us now,

Even if its in baby steps that we go.

I admire your ability to open up and love

With so little restraint;

I envy your impulse to give

Without knowing if it will be returned.

I long to be all of that, open

And unrestrained in love; to allow

Life and love to blossom in my soul

Once more, and to be more powerful than

All of the fears that haunt my scarred heart.

Like a prayer you have come and whispered

Hope into my soul.

Just a mindset I am in. The realization hits me that in order to be loved we must be open to receiving it, truly and genuinely.

Sometime pain teaches us to appreciate a new opening. If we are lucky. We walk into new relationships with our eyes wide open. I like the ending to the poem.

I hate answering this question. It requires me to tell you who I am...the problem is that I am still learning about who I am everyday, and sometimes what I might tell you today, could change by this t.. more..
