Every now and then my heart is overflowing with music, a melody for God.
With the new year just beginning a few weeks ago…
Behold…a melody of my heart…
Behold the early rising sun,
Awakes without delay.
“Good morning” thru your window speaks,
A faithful kiss each day.
Behold your eyes which open up,
As roses after sleep.
Behold and see your garden grows,
God’s beauty gift to keep.
Behold the fragrance of perfume,
From flowers which bloom for you.
Run barefoot thru the morning fields,
Between your toes its dew.
Behold the air you cannot see,
Yet feel its presence there.
Through dance recitals of the waves,
In wind which blows your hair.
Behold the simple touch of warm,
Filled coffee cup to hold.
Escape in thoughts to warm the heart,
Before the day unfolds.
Behold the busyness of life,
Yet for yourself, make time.
Find poetry in everyday,
Walk slow; make moments rhyme.
Behold the love you share with those,
Find gold in every name.
Oh treasure friends and family,
They keep your heart aflame.
Behold the life God gave to you,
Find joy His thought-out plan.
The pages of your book He wrote,
Before your life began.
Behold the seasons which you live,
Spring, summer, winter, fall.
Those seasons you don’t understand,
Fear not, God’s in them all.
Behold your calendar of days,
Take note and number each.
A vapor is the sum of them,
Your generations reach.
Behold what eyes they cannot see,
Your stories yet untold.
Though God would say, “Prepare for them”,
Reach out your hand, behold.
