I have seen the angels rejoice
my mothers love
Kings bow down
shepherds believe
wrathful rulers
saving grace.
I have seen my fathers will.

I have seen Lazarus brought back
a breaking heart
thousands fed
a blind man see
a deaf man hear
a lame man walk.
I have seen the waters calmed.

I have seen angered sneers
mocking soldiers.
ashamed disciples
a faithful thief
my body broken
my blood taken.
I have seen the dusk.

I have seen the stone rolled away
doubting eyes
believing humbleness.
I have seen the dawn.

And through all of this my child,
I saw you.

I agree with Julie, it was like Christ was talking to me personally. Great job!!:

This poem is lovely - Why not consider posting it on the main site, in the spiritual section - It's deserving of a permanent spot there...
