Walk in Beauty

Walk In Beauty
by: R.A. Slater

I walk in beauty like the light
His enshrouding glory
A halo of love that can be seen
Through smiles in darkness
And outstretched arms
Hands that heal the broken
The beauty of lives being changed
Cities renewed and transformed
Hearts being mended and made whole
A far reaching beauty
Shining for all to see
To light the Way for many

Heaven's Streets

Heaven's Streets
by: R.A. Slater

Can you see these tears
That flow so freely
Stemming from your absence in my life?
I cannot stop them
You left so quickly
Without so much as a goodbye
And left me without your presence
Left me with unmet dreams
Plans unfulfilled
Even though I know
We shall meet once again
And dance on heaven's streets
The tears rain down
At the longing to see you again
Just one last dinner
One last cup of coffee
To exchange those words of comfort
To say "I love you!" one last time
But this is denied me
Even in my dreams
So I cling to that hope
Of heaven's golden streets
When once again we meet
What joy that will be!

Blood Like Water

Blood Like Water
by: R.A. Slater

Life flows through my fingers
Blood like water
As salty tears mingle in
Seeping away faster than the tide
And I am powerless to stop it
My greatest fear, my greatest desire
I may never know

The Darkside of the Moon

The Darkside of the Moon

The pain ebbs away
Like the darkside of the moon
But questions remain

And The Bride Danced

And The Bride Danced
by: R.A. Slater

The hero of our story
Stood ready at the altar
Dressed in all of his finery
The jubilant trumpets flared
Their silver peal resounding
The doors swung open
And the bride did enter
Dancing on her way to meet him
Her joy was that complete
Gossamer ribbons of silk
Streamed from her hair and wrists
Fluttering in the breeze she created
Light bouncing off the gems adorning her
Touching all who saw her
As a colorful butterfly flitting from flower to flower
Light and gentle, peaceful and alive
Grace personified
For the battle was over
And the day had been won
