EVER SO GENTLY

Written by: Margaret Okubo


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.
