“I wonder if the world is full
Of other secrets beautiful,
As little guessed, as hard to see,
As this sweet, starry mystery?
Do angels veil themselves in space,
And make the sun their hiding-place?
Do white wings flash as spirits go
On heavenly errands to and fro,
While we, down-looking, never guess
How near our lives they crowd and press?
If so, at life’s set we may see
Into the dusk steal noiselessly
Sweet faces that we used to know,
Dear eyes like stars that softly glow,
Dear hands stretched out to point the way,–
And deem the night more fair than day.”
I like this.
Somehow it speaks to my soul today.
I know it’s not scripture…
But it speaks words of the Spirit.
Perhaps knowing I was ill at ease
It touched my spirit in a way
That soothed me…
As if I sensed a familiar hand
On my shoulder–
Firm but gentle–
I wanted to share this
With each one of you…
Readers and family and friends…
Perhaps you also will “see”
And be blessed with me.
