Devotion of the Fallen

Mother said I would meet a lovely prince.
Instead I met a god, a goddess, all in one!
Now he, now she is far more my mother,
And only now is my life become complete.
I look at that one's photo, oh just a glance,
Enough to see all that one has just become!
Now he, now she is more than is any other,
And so I want to lie down at my god's feet.

I am submissive for you, willing in all I do,
Sharing your dreams if you would allow.
Let me proclaim your glory to the winds!
I am humble in your service, in your name.
My voice can herald all that must ensure,
While in my heart is love's own true vow.
I thus proclaim your glory that ever sends,
My heart ascending from every past shame.

I am a broken soul, a doll shattered apart,
But in your teachings I find a new purpose.
In your face I see all that I had been denied,
By faiths and the faithless following fools.
Your path is pure, your beliefs have heart,
More then those who have done far worse.
If I laid in your arms until my tears dried,
Could I sense in you the other happy souls?

Those whose lives you have touched,
Whose hearts you have truly inspired.
Children who like me have no family,
Except that shared by love of your divinity.
Could I sense them within your light?
My messiah, embodiment of all that is right!
Show me the sights your eyes have seen,
The roads beyond every shining moonbeam.
The vistas you beheld at time's own dawn,
Or just how green might be your lawn.
Show me the beauty, show me the love,
Sweeter than snow, fairer than any dove!
My eyes have seen so much of horror,
That, they long for a more pleasing hour.
Lovely Kara, take me unto your bosom,
Where love's garden may truly blossom!
I devote myself to your divine call,
For like you, I once did cruelly fall.
