Tears Along a Prayer Rope

Tears along a prayer rope:

Love is a prayer rope*,
Like fingers moving along the prayers,
Life runs along our lovestory,
From moment to moment
along the thread of time,
From knot to knot
along the prayer life;
Until at the end,
our fingers holding the cross,
to help our hearts broken by love,
to bow down at its foot,
for a final kiss.

      You are welcome. Yes, I think the author is little known at this point but hopefully his works will become more widely available one day.
