Round Two: New Birth (Recast)

Yes, I have ears that hear the words you speak, but do I really listen?
Yes, I have eyes that see but are the tears you cry really visible to me?
You whisper so softly yet deeply in the keep of my soul, but do I know?

Oh! Light in me the passion-fire of intimate compassion forevermore
And let me soar into your soul to be yours alone and nevermore forlorn!

You pain for my gain, but do I appreciate the plain truth of your love?
You wrap tender fingers gently round my hand to direct, but do I object?
Do I reject your kindly leading in bleeding Love that never fails me?

Oh! Light in me the passion-fire of intimate compassion forevermore
And let me soar into your soul to be yours alone and nevermore forlorn!

Am I so insistent and resistant to your calling while I’m still crawling
On hardened earth? No! No, I choose re-birth and wholly renewed worth
In expectancy of ecstasy of unbounded compassion in passion of heaven!

New Birth

    we can’t see …havin eyes!

    and can’t feel ….though havin heart n soul.

    A new birth is needed! a rebirth …may b its a way of finding the rays of lights
