The Lonely Star

There is a single star shining into my room

Sending down the fruit of the Spirit

Love, peace and joy.

It erases without fail

The pain of the past

Of unforgiving dislike of the self

Of duties unfinished and undone

Of dreams remaining dreams

Of will remaining hidden;

The power of love descends

And washes anew my soul

Spreading glorious light

Of victory over the tempter.

For the single twinkling star

Is there on lonely nights;

And on beautiful nights

Where it might be forgotten among

The other stars shining on;

The mild light of that single star

Is there – it inspires me.

The knock on my heart

I’ve heard it tonight for the star is calling me

That star is the lily of the valley;

The showers come down from there

And my pain has been washed away

The star is my glorious hope of a life

Yet to be done.

[When on my last breath

I’ll hear the words

Echo through my room

“Well done child.”]
