Where People Believe That This World Does Decay (Free Verse Sonnet) - Poem by Gert Strydom

Where do people believe that this world does decay,
that all kinds of disasters do abound on this planet
they do loose sight of God in the universe,
while you and I in this time realise the depth of our love,
where the heat of the sun falls over our bodies
we notice the golden moon while the dogs yelp,
where these things do concern all people
in the veldt we see the thunder reporting blue-white
while the two of us run barefoot through the rain,
where we and are still in His hands
we experience stars that fall from the sky
while without cares we do live day after day
and God's love and mercy do have meaning for us,
while we do know each other in love, happiness and sorrow.
