Everything I need surrounds me
like a protective shell.
The sun drops on my day as I awaken,
and stays with relentless patience.
God is in your eyes and I can see
him every time I look at you.
My head has eternal music without my ears,
and love is inextricably knit around my heart.
A visceral peace arrives at unexpected moments,
one that can only be found in the human soul.
The world, fraught with danger,
has passed over this house
leaving beauty outside every window,
as if God has lost control of His grace,
and let it move in its own tangents
with glorious abandon.
