Crystal Lagoon

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.
