HOME, Happy Domicile, Version III

Happy Domicile,
Version III

Be not troubled.

Believe in me, in the dwelling, here, for you,
Not only in the physical space,
Upon whose floor our hearts' drama plays,
But in my soul where I have built a mansion,
Set a great kitchen wherein sits every appliance,

Super store of food on its cabinets’ shelves,
And within its pantry not only plenty daily sustenance,
But great ardor and emotional well being.

And from the ceiling of our halls and foyer
I have hung awesome crystal chandeliers,

Light, so that our feet not stumble
Should we awake before sunrise
To start our appointed chores.

And were it not so,
Were I to have had a change of heart,
I would not have pledged my word.

I have been utterly honest.

My verse attests to sincerity,
Showing my readiness to receive you;
Happy domicile awaits your presence.

I continue to outfit our home,
And the Lord abides, proclaims
For length of days, health and long life,
And peace shall fill the chests and the closets;
And our rooms shall appear to glow warmly,
Not from some decorator, designer expertise,
But because His grace, the abundance of Holy Spirit.

Where I am, I pray, there may you also be.
And wherever I go, I ask,
-- I know you will keep your promise --
You prove yourself true,

And follow me to that same place, too.
