Let not the sun be vacant from the sky

The sun too quickly took its place

Behind the silhouetted peaks.

I followed it with desperate gaze

And mourned the warning late to keep:


Let not the sun be vacant from the sky

While yet within you harsh impatience lies;

For reckless words will pierce into the heart

But reconciliation grows

From pure and righteous blessings of the wise



This is a lyrical idea I laid down this evening. I already had a musical idea to work with, which always makes it easier, but this is also something I have wanted to express for some time. May it bless you.

Shiloh!

One of the elders has been led to pray mightily for reconcilliation within our church. I'm taking the liberty of passing your verse along to him as I believe it is not only timely, but perhaps even prophetic. Thanks for your beautiful words... and heart!
