The Dark Night of My Soul

What was before a cave in the desert, today is a Palace, His Land.

Our long meetings there in darkness. I could not recognize the place.

He was amazed, shy and preoccupied by my reaction.

Between Mulberry silk fabrics, he carries me gently in his bosom to remind me about him.

I was scared to be surrounded by such a majestic place and I cried.

I hesitated to believe he was the one. I asked him: “Where is your crown?” He answered: “You are my Crown.”

“And all mine are yours, and yours are mine; and I am glorified in them.”

Psalm 91:1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

My eyes and mind were overwhelmed by the number of luxuries.

Patiently and kindly he led me to our memories. After endless nights, Light was made.

In his big arms, he holds me tight and his heart I see.

“Your humble heart”, He says. He has discovered mine.

Deuteronomy 33:27. 27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.

Our eyes meet, and we see each other’s soul. The only one, The one we share, my Divine Counterpart.

Romans 12:1. A Living Sacrifice: 12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

I don’t want to lose you again, I say, and all what happened in the past, we left behind.

Forgiveness I found, and He loves me again. “Don’t be scared”, he says.

“I AM, with you. My love will endure forever.”
