May 1989

 

in The Commons

studying

unsuccessfully

farewell is too soon

from friends so dear

as these

piano music floats

soft upon the air

Brenda is playing again

gloriously!

songs of praise

bursting at my lips

how could I not sing

God is here

 

on the right Evy talks

to friends of hers

passing by

conversation entwined with song

God is here too

 

in my seat am I

shortly to leave this room

full of life

for another

equally bright

in the presence of love

life is calling

I must move on

God is here as well

 

how can God not be here

the music

the love

the life

all proclaim His here-ness

can separation be final

when God is here

everywhere

 


 

Some of my friends added:

“Hallelujah! Praise the LORD! AMEN!”

“Muy bien mi hermano! Gloria a Dios! Amen!”
