A Day to Mourn (A Tribute to the Queen)

My poetic tribute in honour of the Queen, written early this morning.

A day to mourn,
Morning till lighting
Evening candles
Illuminating night —
Darkness falls
Suddenly, unexpectedly —
A song sung
All along our lives
Swiftly silent —
Yet, God finally
Saved our Queen
From the world’s
Madness.

Now who will
Light
Evening candles
Illuminating night
In our world’s
Darkness?
Who will sing
The new song
Long and light
Illuminating our
Night?

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (https://www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (https://www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
