Sitting in the peace of the sanctuary

Praying quiet prayers to God

Doing so with inspiration

Not as though it were a job


The sun beams shone through the windows

Christening me with their holy light

And I thought about those loved ones deceased

And what they meant to me in my life


The choir sang like a band of angels

With voices both clear and bright

And every word that was otherwise spoken

Seemed to be perfect and right


Somehow my soul felt exposed

Willing to be touched in a new way

Something that felt very different

On this very special Spiritual day


People full of tender devotion

Surrounded me with their energy and care

Never have so many positive feelings

Felt like they were swirling in the air


And still as the heavenly voices sang on

Like sweet saints singing just for me

I felt tears for how much I wanted to reach out

And just be embraced by others just like thee     


These are the days to be treasured

And tucked into your sacred chest

Because when it finally comes down to it

They will certainly be some of the best
