Sarah Familia's "I Talked of God" (circa. 2010)

I talked of God to men who knew Him not,
Described His wondrous father’s love, and taught
Brave knees to bend, strong hands to clasp, and eyes
To close against the dark, rough voice to rise
Towards heaven; saw their faces lifted, whole,
A childlike passion kindled in the soul.
And I, who from my early, earnest days
Harked to His words, and walked in all His ways,
Talked with Him, told Him all my childish thought,
Poured forth my tender joys to Him, and brought
My sorrows to His feet, and left refreshed,
And never felt His lack, nor went unblessed,
I never ached or yearned for Heaven’s care
Until I learned I had a Mother there.
