For Ruth

I am gleaning fallen grains

in a field in a foreign land
to feed a poor widow that I love
I am a poor widow myself
in a foreign land among strangers
gleaning grains of hope
Without my plan and knowing
Boaz comes along to the field
Naomi figures out the hidden plan of God
Then I met the invisible God
in my womb
where hope grows and future starts
I am just a poor widow
gleaning love in a foreign land
surrounded by foreign friends celebrating the birth of new life with me
Life is no longer Ruthless
I am no longer poor widow
I am a proud mother of a child

In the Morning

I hear the calling without sound

In the morning light
Is it from the sun or you?
Your heart is bright
shining as your eyes
It is my joy looking into your eyes
You are not blocking my sight
I just see the world through you
even when you are gone
All the memories
and the poems that you wrote with your life
are the mountains where I greet every morning
I miss you, my love
even when you come to see me
I miss you terribly

Prayer

Carry the light

Shine it in daytime
If someone asks why
Warm them up with it
It is not for sight but for heart
When two or three gather together
Make it a bonfire
People will gather around
Find comfort in this cold winter
Build a community
Make it a vineyard
Work there
Produce the best wine for the world
I will make a toast for you!

River runs in a heart

In your heart, runs a river
I can feel breeze at the bank
all the memories of the past
flow with water
In our heart, runs a river
I can hear the quiet sound of joy
all the hopes for the future
run with water
In God’s heart, runs a river
I can feel the beat of new life
all the dreams of God’s Kingdom
splash with laughter

Christmas Song

The star shines

Mary and Joseph does not know.
On the way to Bethlehem
They did not follow any star
The wise men walks to them
Joseph and Mary have no idea
When they put the baby in a manger
They did not know who would come
The shepherds run to the baby
Mary and Joseph does not expect any visitor
When they thought about the daily chores
They did not care for the salvation of humanity
The Star shines
The Wise Men walks
The Shepherds run
And I sing.

You are so beautiful to Me!

You are so beautiful to me

You are so beautiful
to me
God says
You are all I want
nothing else
God whispers into my ears
Me?
Why?
I am nobody!
I resisted with all my strength, with all my heart, and with all my life
Then I saw the baby (a young man)
lying in a manger (hanging on a cross)
in that little town Bethlehem (on that hill of Golgotha)
helplessly quietly sleeping (dying)
You are so beautiful
to me
I said
You are all I want
nothing else
I whispered.
Then the rest is history!

Your presence

I sit in front of you

I can feel your breath
I can hear your heart beating
I can see you even when I close my eyes
I am flying into you
I am in you
I am one with you
I see now all the creation through you
How free
how joyful
how thankful
because of you I am here
Now I do not know how to live without you
I have no other ways to live except in you
I am living because of you
You live in me
