That Secret Place

Written by: Faith Wendeline Ong (Photo by: Zann Lee)


I bow my head and close my eyes
I still my heart and seek to find
That secret place behind the veil
I sit my soul and rest my mind

I empty myself of what’s inside
I empty my heart and void that space
I settle myself, I sit and wait
There I’m filled, unending grace

I turn my eyes and lift my head
I shyly glance and find your gaze
You did not hide nor look away
I squint at the glow on your face

You look around and begin to smile
I ask in what you found delight
Your lips broaden and soon I know
I am what was in your sight

My heart begins to leap in joy
My lips part to sing and praise
That you would love me as I am
Forever Lord, I stay amazed
