In the clear, deep colors of a sunset
Blended so perfectly no perceptible division lies
Between one pure color and the next;
So penetrating, as I gaze into its depths
An endless universe comes into focus
Ushered in by few evening stars;
I gaze into its depths contemplating its beauty
And see the eyes of my Beloved,
Behind which lies an endless universe.
In the sweet, tender touch of a new baby’s hand
I touch Your soft, sweet hand.
In this pure, soft face of most tender love
That gazes with helpless longing,
I gaze into Your loving face.
In the hills so green with soft new growth,
In the soft, tender mosses that so cling
To ground, tree, rock; so softly they cling
Yet so strong a union one cannot easily separate,
I gaze upon the soft strength of Your Heart,
So tender, so moving, so healing to touch,
Heart against Heart.
In the soft face of a lonely heart,
In the sadness and humility of neglect,
I gaze upon Your face, my Love.
In the painful, confused eyes of the sick,
In the betrayed and abandoned eyes of the tortured,
In the deep desiring eyes of the hungry,
I see into Your eyes, my Beloved.
I gaze upon You in the dying
That search my face for love, for hope,
For a meaning to their longing
And an end to their pain.
I see but Your face, my Love, in all,
In their beauty, their anguish and their longing.
In the wind that stirs my soul
And the gentle breeze that calms,
In the strength and softness of the ocean waves
That move with a depth immeasurable,
In the gentle sparrow’s humility
And the delicate scent of the rose,
All speak of You, my Love, all.
In the endless agonizing prayer
Of parents for their children;
In the broken hearted who hope still
With the pieces of their hearts;
In the deep link of families
Reaching through generations
Holding the Fabric of Life
Together in their grasp.
In all I see Your face, Your touch,
Your eyes that see all,
Your Heart that feels all.
No place do I not see You, save despair.
Nowhere do I not hear Your Voice
Speaking through form, through hearts,
Through hopes, through longings,
All echo of Your tender Heart,
All a whisper of the Spirit,
A breath of the Divine,
A Heartbeat of the Sacred
Speaking to me of the depth of Your Love
And the completeness of Your Presence
