You found me

In a dark alley

Drenched and shivering

Fast losing grip on life


You were a beacon of hope

Your words were water

To my parched soul

An oasis in a desert


I was a dying vine

Wilted and withered

Now luscious and luxuriant

From your careful tendering


You found me when

I needed to be found

You saved me

Just in the nick of time.

    Awww, Sweetness! The imageries used here are so precise and spot on !’Your words were water…..’, deep! Words are very powerful! They have the ability of making or marring, after all; we all came to be by the spoken word of He who’s referred to as ‘The Word’ Himself! Nice one Doc, grace and wisdom multiplied!
