We See God

When the colored ribbons of morning
  drape across the shadowed horizon,
When the ocean's barely bubbles
  first toe the shores of still dry sands,
When an infant's breast-fed cooing
  thanks it's momma for a timely meal,
When the birthday boy's exuberance
  let's sister have the first piece of cake,
When the hurried high school student
  holds the door for a late classmate,
When a man wearing a hat in the rain
  offers his umbrella to keep another dry,
When graveyard-shift nurses silently
  hold crying hands in the hospital dark,
When the receding waters of the sea
  begin to sing goodnight, a frothy lullaby,
When the curtains of a very busy day
  benevolently close to invite a time of rest,
When we see these and other acts of love,
  when we see such kindness and joy in action,
We see God's presence.
We see God in action.
We see His heart.
We see God.
