Writing Type: Poem
By Kellie Davenda Daniels
VA Medical Center--Memphis, TN
I opened the door to my heart.
You came in.
My life was filled with sin, but not anymore.
Ever since I opened the door,
I've encountered you on a daily basis.
Now my spirit is an oasis.
An oasis for your Word, my mind, my gifts.
My soul is stirred.
What must I do now that I've found you?
Shall I surrender my soul as in the days of old
when the Samaritan woman found you at the well?
She went on to tell everyone she knew
about a man that could explain all she ever did,
and had the power to make all things new.
Your Word is made plain; I'll never be the same.
I have a new name because I encountered Heaven.
