Window Smudges


The windows here are cleaned each night
From smudges placed on windowpanes;
They’re always found at children’s height,
No matter if it shines or rains.

Some youth with Fragile X and Downs,
Abandoned by their parents’ care; 
Will sit in class and learn the sounds
Of different words they’ll come to share. 

Though struggling first to say a phrase,
While teacher prompts them to begin;
Each pronounced word is met with praise,  
Which make some light up with a grin. 

When words are through and class is done, 
A chaplain comes for Bible hour;  
And reads where Christ will raise each one
With strong new bodies filled with power.

They also learn, He’ll come with love
To take away their loneliness;
And cause each mind to heal above
With brilliant thoughts of holiness.

Then after school hours come to pass,
Each child will walk to windows near;
And stand with face pressed close to glass,
As they wait for Him to appear. 

The windows here are cleaned each night
From smudges placed on windowpanes;
They’re always found at children’s height,
No matter if it shines or rains.
