“Splendor”

One night
when the stars were aligned
one magnified in brightness
and I did aspire
in kinship to catch it

I can not lie
to a wise man
what manner of love
should I be called
a daughter of God

so keep watch brother wise men
child of the light is coming through
in your wake do you see me or
pass me by unrecognized

I stare in the sky for signs
to find my Messiah
stars dance along
before my eyes
shine back as a reminder

a sweet joyful sense
of his approach
open to guidance
through deserts and wild places
and I keep coming back for hope

so keep watch brother wise men
child of the light is back in town
in your wake do you see me or
pass me by unrecognized
