L’Amour et rien d’autre *

Love, and nothing else


That’s all that’s left here now

The fear has gone

The shadows fled

There’s nothing left of ‘me’


All self surrendered

Anxiety set free

I count my blessings as the sun has set

And wake to the dawn of a new day


Love, and nothing else

There’s nothing else here now

It is not mine

But His alone

That’s all that’s left here now.
