I hear your voice
Your face is hidden from me
Your words paint murals of spirits touched by your grace
I don’t see you, I feel you, but I still can’t touch you
The enchantment of this wonder can never be more majestical than the wonder of your magnificence
I ululated to elevate your name
Only to drop down on my knees to humble myself, knowing that I will ascend with your mercy
The benevolence of your words are a beneficent manuscript of the testaments of the praises of your power
My faith is my shadow
The night comes as a comfort to the restless spirit
I walk triumphant knowing that I have conquered the lust of my dreams
I desire only to live in the rays of your light.
