Lifted to Love ~a poem by Linda Willows

Gift me wonder,
return me to raw…
Lift me to Love,
till my garden spills awe.

Let nothing remain,
that separates my heart
from the one direct view,
that we are, none, apart…

Grace me, let bow
all the tears of a life,
given mercy and might,
for the chance to end strife.

Tender the soft,
the gentle dear touch;
this gratitude, God,
this endless Love such…
