The Covering

The Covering

written by: Fay Marmalich-Vietmeier



Lord, please help me to rest .. to sleep
Too many thoughts for my mind to keep
It’s dark outside and the sky is reigning .. snow
Huge .. soft .. quiet .. wonderous flakes
Falling like manna from heaven
A feast for my eyes
If time would freeze
I would paint forever pictures
Then frame them on the walls of my mind
Of all the people I love
Those who touched my heart .. with their heart
Some for a lifetime and some for a day
Are kept in my heart and always will stay
Memories are like trees .. growing outward & upward
Branches dipped in white forgiveness .. bowing down
A Grace covering .. a soft white blanket
Laid quietly upon the earth
Snow hugging the trees
Feels like God hugging me
