Read Poem: GRACE, by Sid Ries

“Dear child, what are you doing here?
What brought you to this painful place?
Why leave the joyful Heaven’s planes,
To come where others leave in fear?”

“They told me my beloved ‘s here.
Together – what are we to fear?
They said, when joy’s replaced by pain,
Hope never lost to Grace its way.”

“I fear for you, you foolish boy,
How you’ll be able to survive?
Hope here is but a word for lost,
And faith in Grace is just a joke for most.”

“You stayed too long here on your own,
Forgetting our ancestral home.
Your doubts just made me realize:
My purpose here, my love – for you to rise.
Oh yeah, how clearly now I see!
It’s all – about you and me
