Longing For A Warmer Day: A Prayer


by Jim Rapp
 
It’s been days now since we’ve seen your face.
Just now an array of shadowed branches played
across my close drawn window shade –
a display of random hopefulness they made –
and then I sadly watched them fade away.

It’s been days now since we’ve seen your face.
Come, bright brother – come and stay!
Drive the chilling winds and rain away;
melt the snows that, shielded in their northern lays,
defy the power of your warming rays.

It’s been days now since we’ve seen your face.
Hearts are longing for a warmer day.
