If cobwebs fill the corners

From the Boundless Life collection

If cobwebs fill the corners

That lurk within our mind

Our faith can help us brush aside

Each clinging thought we find

Until we glimpse a garden filled

With wonders unconfined,

A garden where children can play,

Children can play,

A garden where children can play.

 

Within that garden crafted

By childhood’s ageless dream

We each can walk a pathway

That leads to self esteem;

A way of life where we can pause

Beside life’s flowing stream,

A stillness which nurtures our peace,

Nurtures our peace,

A stillness which nurtures our peace.

 

We each can build a fence around

Our sacred inner child

Excluding all that does not come

As gentle, meek or mild

For life is more than cobwebbed silk

And love is bold and wild,

A dancing that wakens new life,

Wakens new life,

A dancing that wakens new life.

 

Note: see Matthew 18:3  “Unless you become as a little child, you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven” (the way of wholeness).
