Prayer in Secret

An inner turning
Of the heart and mind;
An unseen embrace
Into Love divine.

What deep communion
Is this secret prayer;
A constant unfolding
Into Love’s great care.

The sweetness of engaged delight
Away from the world
Yet still in its sight;
A wonder yet untold.

Silent words whispered;
Echoing – reverberating.
In a sweethearts’ retreat
Of  Love‚Äôs ever burning.

Enter the secret chamber of the heart
The golden gate,
The inner room
Where Love awaits.
