Like snowflakes on my eyelashes
Like the gentle wind that blows
Like the rustle of leaves on trees
and birds chirping in the eaves
You come each day and touch my soul
With fingers warm and light
And kiss my cheek a breath of jasmine
that make my senses reel
Illusive as a sunbeam
I know when you’re near
By the scent of love’s sweet fragrance
and the upcurl of my hair
When my heart's bursting with joy
and your light comes shining through
I know ti's you dear God,
I know ti's you.
Inspired by Maya Angelou.
