Mystical Imaginings

Love equals a lamp which glows and glows.
A rose endures a wish which grows and grows.

Shine like a lamp! Bloom like that rose!
Regardless which path you finally chose.

An imaginary garden, lit by a lamp which
Forever glows, requires one’s best effort,
All life’s experience, wisdom, one knows.

One’s grand finale Christ Jesus did compose,
Loving all mankind, forgiving all foes

One’s unique life story comes to its close,
Wrapped up in mystical ribbons and bows!
