Send me a rainbow – Laura Story

Just to hold you, child.

Just to know you, child.

Just to hear you cry.

To look into your eyes.

Just to see you, child.

Just to touch you, child.

Pieces of me I will not see

This side of time.

Send me a rainbow now.

Send me a rainbow now.

Cause only You know why

And only You know how.

Send me a rainbow now.

Let Jesus hold you, child.

For Jesus knows you child.

Let Jesus hush your cry.

Lord Jesus, please hush mine.

Send me a rainbow now.

Send me a rainbow now.

Cause only You know why

And only You know how.

Send me a rainbow now

in silence we cry

part 1, by Sarah Trost

in silence we cry
and you do not hear

in silence we die
and you do not care

when is it called life, this life that I live?
When my heart beats?  When I can breathe the air that you breathe?
I’m alive NOW, why won’t you believe?

you may say that you care
that I am dying here

you may fain interest
and even shed a tear

Communion

Posted by: Sarah Trost in Poems No Comments »

“Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty; Who was, and is, and is to come. Holy, Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty.”

Wave upon wave, like a gentle rumble of thunder, the words roll in circular motion around the throne.

“Glory, Hallelujah, He reigns!” the saints declare amidst the angels’ chant.

All bow before them, the Eternal Father and His Sacrificed Son.

A warm inviting light surrounds them, pierces them, revealing only truth and goodness because all darkness has already been exiled.

The light pulsates with colors, a prisom of sorts, but the room is washed in more colors then one can even imagine, colors Earth has never experienced.

It is a perfect place, a perfect moment; a moment experienced with all but also a solitary moment between the Saint and God.

Total communion.
