A Petal Unfolds

A Petal UnfoldsEvery breath that breathes upon
Our heart of pain and sorrow
Dries a tear with His own touch
A new perfume for tomorrow

The rose, so exquisitely profound
Has petals that break and fail
And like our weaknesses and hurt
With God will one day pale

So let the Lord remove the pieces
That seem to forever overwhelm
The fragrance of long lost loved ones
Will be infused from another realm

Tears laced with perfect love
Will help the worn out petals leave
And take the pain and broken promises
Of a heart that longs to cleave

Shadows of doubt will be cast when
That dear old fragment silently departs
But the wounded void of longing goes
Shattered lives of a broken heart

Gone the pain, gone the guilt
Gone the urgency of shame
Tears will cleanse with His own Word
Never, no more the same

A new rose releases fresh perfume
A new petal beautifully unfolds
And as another too becomes whole
God’s praise the rose beholds

Every breath that breathes upon
Our heart of pain and sorrow
Dries a tear with His own touch
A new perfume for tomorrow

(in my e-book “Fragrance from the Spring”)
