    Baptism completed
    Soul and spirit cleansed
    The fellowship with death has ended
    And from the depths of the Sea
    I return
    Yet not I
    But more than I once was
    More than just a man
    More than just a scribe
    More than just Love’s Favorite Son
    A new chapter
    Is now being written
    As I look across Love’s Sea
    The waters
    Are now calm
    As its Guardian
    Walks along the shores
    Light
    From beyond
    Heaven’s Gate
    Descends
    Bathing
    A once forgotten structure
    With its radiant glow
    Igniting a flame
    That pierces through
    The darkness
    So that those on Love’s Sea
    Can once again find their way
    I have come to reclaim
    That which is my birthright
    As the Lighthouse
    Shines brightly
    Never to be extinguished again.

    Your scribe speaks of undergoing a change for the better, a rebirth so to speak. That is always a good thing. I've read some of your poetry from the past, good to read something new from you. Flow on poet.

    sighing
    exhausted
    as relief arrives
    the light shines
    bright once again
