The Kingdom

1 min read 911 views

I recently had one of those moments where something made sense. Sitting in church on Sunday the Kingdom of God seemed to come into clarity.

I set aside a season for my love And a garden to remember her by; So that upon the chime of the new moon My dear love would arrive.   Oh, where has the time gone, Since last she did pass? I have been lost for so long, And so long, lost in the past –   Leaving me wounded…
