Melanie Barbato- A Poem

Order in me my love

My children, my books,
Sunshine, good looks,
Chocolate and tea
The mountains, the sea
Tools, toys and stuff
The gentle, the rough
Order in me, God, my love

Fame, a clean name
The new and the same
Retirement savings
Food for my cravings
Food to survive
Happiness, life
Order in me, God, my love

A house and a home
The freedom to roam
Meaning and health
Wisdom and wealth
Memories, dreams
The Lord who redeems
Order in me, God, my love

Bio: Melanie Barbato has an academic background in Religious Studies and is currently completing her doctoral studies at LMU Munich/ Germany.
