Abide With Me

The Beginning.
No, you’re not The Beginning
But you are the beginning
Of my joys and happinesses
They start with you

The End.
No, you’re not The End
But you are the end of my miseries
Before you they die the death

The Eternal
No, you’re not The Eternal
But I bid thee
Abide with me a lifetime

And never!
Of us asunder
Never try to ponder

    • Hello Mimi. Thank you for coming by my space. I’m sure what you find here doesn’t amount to much so I’m humbled that you can even consider featuring me on your limelight blog. Hahaha. I love the challenge through. At least would give me the chance to rack this busy brain☺. I say yes and hop onto your wagon 😊


  2. This is sweet…
    Relationship described in the way it was meant to be. A woman’s first and eternal lover is her Lord, the one who gives her life, the one who loves her more than any other, and the One who teaches her to love and embrace love; the One who is love Himself and the source from which love flows from her heart.
    Then she can bond with her man, her soul mate (by an eternal union), her lover and her lord.
    It is only when this order is followed that bliss as it meant to be- an overflowing of pleasure both from above and across- can be enjoyed in a marital union.

      • Yes o doc. I couldn’t agree more. Yemie has taken commentary and made it into beautiful art. Seriously, I think she should start something like ”the art of commentary” or something like it, lol! 😃
