*I had a few specific people in mind when I penned this, but it certainly applies to anyone who has touched our souls and has made their mark powerfully in an uplifting manner in our lives. To all of you out there who fit this description in my life and history, thank you and I love you!
The echo of my soul to yours
Rebounds in friendship back to mine.
The mortal chains of worldliness
Lay broken by the love divine
That keeps my heart alight and strong
In spite of darkness in this life.
You lend a hope and joyfulness
That pierces through the pain and strife.
My love I leave with you and hope
That blessings rain upon the soul
That fuses now along with mine
And finds my broken heart made whole.
