When Love Walked In


When love walked in

I felt its presence

I heard its voice

And I wanted to be like it

When love walked in

My heart grew larger

My ego got smaller

And I felt happier than I ever had

When love walked in

I felt fear walk out

The constricting hands released my throat

And I drew a sigh of relief

When love walked in

I embraced it with open arms

I held it with sacred hands

And I offered it up to the Saintliest Angel

Thank you for lifting me higher

Than I’ve ever been lifted

Thank you for the abundance of Spirit

the likes of which I had not known

When love walked in

I got really comfortable living in my own skin

  1. So beautiful.
    As I was reading this poem today I was immediately reminded of the Day that the Lord came down and personally touched my heart and softly whispered to it, “I know YOU, Melanie, and I love you.”
    My life did a 180 that day and has continued to grow and become more beautiful. That is what your poem today made me think about.
    I love how your words just open me up.
    You have a beautiful gift and I am so thankful and blessed every time you share it.

  3. When love walked in…
    The repetition of this line gives the poem a very rythm, a kind of pulse… heartbeat… I love your poem… and its message of gratitude:

    Than I’ve ever been lifted
    Thank you for the abundance of Spirit”
    yes, gratefulness, it is so important!
