I See You

I see
your signature written in a sunset sky
In soft shades of pink and gold.

I see

your reflection cast in the still river
Among the sunlit leaves, and green trees of old.

And its your smile..

I feel when I close my eyes
The grass under my hands; above me endless sky.

Your smile

I know when I stand high
on a hill, with the whole of forever in my view.

Your voice

I hear when the Tui sings
Praising creation, among the blossoms of spring.

Your voice

which soothes me in the song
of the sea, as the ocean meets the lonely shore.

And its your touch…

that stirs my soul, warms my heart
and woos me to the core.

Your touch

which I feel through every sense,
as I perceive the gift of this earth.

Take in the wonder of it all.

Ana Lisa de Jong

"The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard; yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world."  Psalm 19 1-4
