I'm well and truly loved (Poem)

Posted in:
Update: Just to say that I'll soon get back to posting excerpts of the Gladys and Edward story. I have just signed the contract with my publishers and want to finalize things first. Hopefully things will be clearer by the end of the week. In the meantime, enjoy the poem...


Your love is music in my heart
In the midst of the silent desert
Your love is the warm blanket
Over me in the coldest season
In a dark and heavy sky
It is the brightest star
Your love is a guiding light
In the blackest of night
Through the hardest famine
It feeds me with food and wine
Even in the hottest weather
It cools my lips with water
Your love springs up to fill me
When drought seeks to kill me
So I'm not going to be moved
Because I’m well and truly loved
