In the shimmer of a summer twilight
the sunlight filters through the leaves and teases my soul
Touching a familiar ache
The shadow of an echo of a beauty I’ve never seen with human eyes
But the eyes of my heart behold and cannot look away
I know my destiny is somewhere beyond the sunset.
When everything is good and I know I’m blessed and yet …
Somehow I know there exists a surpassing better
Suffering no longer existing
Glory beyond the mundane.
And I feel like such a stranger on my own planet
As if in a few blinks this broken reality will shatter
Everything wrong made right
As I find rest for my weariness.
