    ramblings from the hope chest...


    people who
    go around
    proclaiming there
    is no God

    have never
    fully learned
    to appreciate
    this life with all their
    senses

    to drink of
    life and taste it
    full on...
    is to know
    He does exist

    to know
    the peace
    that comes
    at sunset,

    to feel
    the cares of
    another day
    of living
    fall away
    like an overcoat

    to feel a
    lifting of
    burdens
    and spirits
    at evening...

    to turn
    our eyes
    upon the
    personification of
    our love
    and see
    our own
    reflection through
    their eyes,

    to feel
    warm
    hands
    extended,
    clasping fingers
    holding to the
    heart
    in silence

    two embrace
    two join
    two cling
    together
    till morning

    ~one love~

    arising...

    reborn

    (again)

    is proof enough
    there is a God
