Empty echoes in

Hallowed halls,

Utterly compelling.x


Soul Mates

Seeking the Beauty of Your Eyes,

Yearning for the Splendor Your Touch,
Desiring none but You.

Through You

So true.

Sounds of the Son

It’s not revealed to you
It’s revealed through you
Your life becomes the expression
Of the joy that will pursue you!

It grows within you
Your heart gives it the start
The soul lets it continue

It isn’t something new
It is someone new
Yourself becomes your self
It is a whole other you!
