*~* Because - Poem by Mari Martin
In all the world
there is beauty.
It is not always seen.
It is not always felt.
Yet, with the miracle of Creator's gift,
my eyes are filled with a beauty
I have never known.
Through sorrow do we find joy.
do we find courage.
do we see the depths of sadness.
do we find a better way to live.
do we find our strength.
In my life,
I have come to know,
to experience an aloneness so profound,
I have never been alone
because there is that one heart
that has always been there
through all the tears,
through all the dreams,
through all the endless nights,
waiting for the precise moment in time
when Creator smiles
and says, 'It is time'.
I may falter,
but, your hand will be there to guide me.
I may experience sadness,
but, your arms will comfort me.
I may experience weakness,
but, your smile will give me strength.
I may experience sorrow or hardship,
but, you will be with me when it comes.
I may be afraid,
but, you will be my courage.
How do I know the truth
of all these words?
Love is your name.
