Echoing Our Lady

For Flashback Friday — this is a poem from a poetry notebook of mine that I haven’t looked at for a long time. Linked with JusJoJan. I wrote this on July 4, 2018 (I need to give myself credit so as not to commit plagiarism 🙂 ).


Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum:
Let it be done to me according to your word,
According to your gracious voice,
The most beautiful I’ve ever heard.

May trust rise up, that I may say:
Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum,
Your loving will is intricate,
weaving tapestries as on a loom.

I do not see the end result today,
Yet your eyes do, Craftsman full of skill:
Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum,
I do not know, yet you always will.

May your kingdom come, and not my own,
I abdicate my throne to give you room,
you are the rightful owner of this heart:
Fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum.

P.S.  I’m grateful to myself for writing this because I had totally forgotten about it and needed the reminder about what is most important. 🙂 Hope you like it, too.
