I Watch You in Silence

I Watch You in Silence

I watch you in silence

Speaking only in my mind

Counting up the treasures

That are mine

Because you’re my bride.

 

And although the hour is early

And time for you to slumber on

I am awake beside you

Framing thoughts

Of the future of we two.

 

Not just these days

That run to tomorrow

For in them we’ll be

Imperfect still.

 

But of that thrill

When we stand before Him

The self

All given away

And made perfect in His Day.

 

To that end

Let us live

Right choices

Unheeding

Other voices

 

Knowing

Who we’ll be in that day

No furrowed worries

The tears all wiped away

A smile in bloom for all around us

And everywhere love at play.

(for my bride of 40 years

this month)
