Messenger of Promise
*
The mists of fate were parted
And the morning sun revealed
The messenger of promise
As she joined the battlefield
The timeless beauty of her form
Was seasoned by the score
Of challenges met yesterday
And battles fought before
A solitary soldier
Knelt upon the ground in tears
Still clinging to his broken heart
Confessing doubts and fears
His courage had been shaken
By the sadness he had known
The messenger of promise
Came for him and him alone
She laid a gentle hand upon
The weary soldier’s brow
And comforted his lonely heart
As only she knew how
In loving eyes and gentle touch
He found his hope again
The messenger of promise
And the love she offered him
