To Know You

Poem By WENDELL A. BROWN

I seek to see
you with the power
of my eyes

I seek to touch
you with the tips
of my fingers

I seek to feel
your love as you
embrace me
Lord from afar

Yet Lord are you
not Spirit, an eternal
life, that will abound
forever…

So even if I touch a
leaf on a tree I will
also, find a part of
your living essence
within it

For you Lord are
everything that is,
and everything is
A part of you

There is nothing that
exists without your
breath of life to
empower it each day

For your life is the
spirit inhabiting
our bodies so when
we reach out to touch
You…

Can we not also touch
a red rose that blooms
early in the morning
and know we have touched
a part of you also

Can I not look at the
sky and watch the power
which propels clouds
to fly while enjoying
it's blueness that is a
a painters background
and not also see you?

Can I not feel your love
as the sun awakens me
with its soft kiss of
warmth and know that
I have felt you, Lord?

For you are a part of
all that lives, so I need
not see you with my
eyes to know that you
are always close to me.

For your life, your love,
your spirits lasting embrace
reaches all life I meet…

Making your entire being my
most precious treasure as its
lasting imprint will always
be alive spiritually with me.

I Will Never Let It Go

You are the truest blessing to me Lord
One who fills my heart daily with joy
Whether close to me or only in spirit
Your selfless living words I see to employ

The Moment Love Begins

To gaze upon your glowing beauty each day
Fills my heart with the special joy it needs
As happiness finds itself overwhelming me
Your sweet beauty my heart seeks to seize

Embracing Change

Putting self to death is
an act most cannot do
casting off what holds
one captive allows one

Simply Put

My heart embraces you daily
As your smile sweeps me away
And I am now as always
Of your love a willing slave

True Love Blossoms

True love blossoms into forever pearls
Polished by eternity's lasting kiss
moments that started within a tiny dream
Lay on a foundation that will always last

To Me

My heart turns
To limitless love…
It turns to you
