Too long have you not realized,
Sweet soul, dear hopeless heart,
Impoverished by constant pretense,
You must discard your deliberate guise.
There is nothing unknown
And nothing unseen,
Exposed is everything future,
And all that has ever been.
Every good deed
And every dark thought,
Every word spoken,
And every hope sought.
Yet loved beyond measure,
Protected and pursued,
With great arms that hold you tightly
And strong hands that never abuse.
Life is not empty or meaningless,
Death marks no tragic end,
Discover your special purpose,
Start hoping, start living again.
Now be his eternal beloved,
Beautiful bride and cherished child,
Walk boldly down that aisle
With a paradise discovered smile.
