In The Temple



The hours magnify your Glory, sweet Jesus.

Each minute
another moment of complete love.
The seconds
are my heartbeats from your Sacred Heart.
My days
are awesome freedom;
awesome beauty --
visiting with You in this temple.

Many times I've wondered
at the pure Sacred power utilized,
molding this vessel.
In my heart of heart I've felt
everytime you've lifted it.
When the way was rough,
when this vessel was about to break.
I heard your Words, you spoke.
I felt your Love
patiently covering impurities of the alter,
with beautifully crafted bronze metal.

Now each hour is for your Glory.
Each minute, my need to walk with you.
Each second, a reflection;
a heart beating as One with You.
To be free from being alone.
To be free from the fear of death.
To be free to walk in humility.
To be free in giving love without fear.
No longer need I walk questioning my steps,
in the darkness.
For Jesus, You walk with me,
and there is Light in this temple.

Lucian Tower Claim this poet

I began writing Lyrics, short stories, and poetry some 43-years-ago. When I was in high school, during the 60s, I met the great Robert Frost. He spoke to me about my real elementary attempts at writing and poetry. He took some time with me, after assembly hall and told me to not stop writing. Now, that I have been around the world as a USMarine, and have lived through 2-years of the Vietnam War, I still am writing. Now at 63-years-old, I am enjoying being on Poetry.com with you all. I was born 12/21/1948, in Worcester, MA. There I began trying to write lyrics at 5-years-old, on my Grandmother's piano -- this has been a life-time ambition/Hobby for me. I live now in Gallatin, TN, and I am disabled/retired from the vietnam war.This is how I move around and, hopefully, meet others of like mind/spirit. I am mostly American Indian and 4th Generation Irish in the USA. My poetry are moments, which I've seen, and lived during my life. I believe allpoetry are photos, or glimpses into moments of life. Styles have changed over the years, and it is in reading/listening to others' poems that give poets ideas and imaginations to build their own style. This is who I am, as a man, who simply loves the written arts/preforming arts. Keep on writing!Lucian Tower. more…
