Whispers of Light

I listen to the whisper of angel wings
Hovering at the edge of eternity
Her glowing fingers play silver harp strings

I am mesmerized by her purity
Here I behold her light with thankful eyes
Hovering at the edge of eternity

I am far from worthy I realize
I'm amazed at this revealed mystery
Here I behold her light with thankful eyes

The culmination of my history
Still I am not ready to take her hand
I'm amazed at this revealed mystery

I know I belong in another land
Beyond the clouds waits a heavenly gate
Still I am not ready to take her hand

She flies away I am allowed to wait
I listen to the whisper of angel wings
Beyond the clouds a heavenly gate
Her glowing fingers play silver harp strings

    You never cease to amaze me. You are a man who has his sights set on the eternal, and whose heart can hear the whispers of the angels.

    I think the angels are bowing to this poem. What touching lines. Very, very thought-provoking...whispers really can be louder than screams, when spoken from the heart.
