Inside my heart
by Joanne Troppello
Inside my heart there’s a cavern deep,
filled with crystals, diamonds, and jewels
the Lord has given my soul to keep.
But as I journey deeper still,
I enter my heart’s crystal lagoon
and feel walls break around my strong will.
I feel the bleakness of this lagoon,
wrap around my entire being
and force me to some action soon.
I wander and wander aimlessly
until I come to a certain sparkling pool,
which beckons me to look down deeply.
I do so, and to my utter surprise,
I see a vision of your face before my eyes.
It is then that I can think of the truth,
honor, and valor of your existence
and know it is You, my Lord whom I love.
