Poetry ~ Helen Schucman

 

The Comforter
~*~
By Helen Schucman*

[as it appeared in the  August 2011 Newsletter] 

Step back, My child, and let Him lead the way
Whom I have sent to you. He holds your hand
And speaks to you of Me. His memory
Holds in your mind My Name. His peace surrounds
My child with all the love a Father feels
For what He cherishes above all else
In earth and Heaven. Whom I sent to you
Has shared My Heart and brings My Word with Him
To solace and to comfort all the world
That has forgot My Name. Homeless are they
Who would abide alone, apart from Me.
Yet would I call them home. My Voice I send
To sing in soundless places. Hear from Me
The song a Father sings to you, His child;
A melody from far beyond he world,
Step back and listen, for He comes to bless
And tell you that you are not comfortless
.The summer’s stillness of arresting heat;

    Absolutely beautiful! I think that those of us who study A Course in Miracles ought to give consideration often to the supplementary works. Thank you! Most cordially, Celia
