LA FEMME AVEC UNE BELLE VOIX




A voice, so quiet
So pure
Nearly imperceivable
But moving to my soul
Called to me
From the darkness
Shaking me
Warming me from the cold
Making me
Aware
Awake
From life’s killing toll
She beckoned me
She called my name
She asked for nothing
But simply gave
In her voice
So much peace
So much hope
So much love
I knew
I would be redeemed
Of my life
Of my miseries
For her voice
Was true
Her promise
Was proof
I stood upon holy ground
When she spoke
I have never heard
Such beauty
In a single sound

(Dedicated)
