'Even Though You'Re Not Here, You'Re Here' - Poem by Greg Oosterhouse

Even though you're not here, you're here.
You are the smile on my face.
Even though you're far away, you are oh, so near.
I'm surrounded by reflections of your grace.

You fill every space of my heart,
It keeps beat to your melodious tune.
Your picture in my mind is a great piece of art.
Each time I view it all I can do is swoon.

Your touch makes me shiver and shake
Even though on its mem'ry I depend.
The breeze on my bod makes me do a double take,
For it reminds me of the touch of my friend.

My eyes jumped for joy when you appeared.
My jaw ached from my enormous smile.
With bolts of love my heart was speared,
Its contents more voluminous than the Nile.


Lord, in all I do, may the glory go to You. Amen.
