Poem: “Dilating Heart”

Dilating Heart

Your grace is overflowing
Within my soul and showing
A beam of light in tenebrae.

My heart I feel is swelling
With love, for you’re indwelling,
Deep-rooted friend and Domine.

Lead onward in this sailing
Of white-capped years unveiling
To reach the shores of iubilae.

And with your strength instilling
A tattered heart, though willing,
Guide, shield, and keep me hodie.
