Those beautiful eyes
Those wonderful eyes;
Delight caught up in a surprise moment of radiant green-blue eyes
A brightness pulsing with vitality
A rich soul full of God’s Light
Priceless Gift from above
Now at rest in one so chosen,
She overflows with the “living stream” our Lord spoke of
Pure and simple reality clothes another woman with lasting beauty.
In another divine encounter
Two who meet on a day of sovereign circumstances
At the market or the mall or the post office,
Even the park way or sidewalk
Along the path of one man who has learned to care and watch!
Eternal youth speaks through these soul windows
This human lamp of an older grandmother, a widow, stooped and fragile
With a glow of the heavenly threshold on a sword’s fine edge,
Such confidence , assurance soars as her spirit soon will
Triumphant sweep over this world,
Display of love’s victory over death in a quickened smile
The temporary boundaries of body and earth
Just as a strong migrant bird glides easily,
High over the expanse of any ocean.
