today, she realized....

today she realized......
that she can brush her fingers across the sky,
wrap herself in a cloud of splendour,
sit upon a sunstar named strength,
and hold its rays of joy in the palm of her hand

yes, today, she realized
that she can dance across the top of a hurricane,
never bowing down to its twisty gusto,
in fact, she can reach into its eye,
yank out peace,
grasp calmness,
capture serenity

my, my, my, today, she realized
that she can walk,
deliberately, gracefully, elegantly,
royalty lives in her steps,
faith tickle her toes,
patience caresses her ankles,
and delight entices the soles of her feet,

oooooo weeee, today, she realized
that she is a pearl of great price,
and it is The Father's great pleasure to
pour out the vaults of grace over her being,

she is a Rose of Sharon,
a Lily of the Valley,
the eyes which overwhelm,

praise God,
because today,
this day,

she realized

to Him she is perfection
to Him she is glorious
to Him she is



today, realized

so, in the morning when I
wake and The Almighty says,
"My darling, you have stolen my heart,
my sista, my bride, you have stolen
my heart."

I will simply smile and say,

"Thank you Father,
and yes, I know because

here, now, today
