February 1986


faces fade before my eyes

their voices disappear

and you come by again

again to grace my mind


why this should be

I don't know

all I know is this

your smile is all I see

one of overflowing joy

second only to your eyes

on fire for our Lord


I pray that I too

may be seen as such

unfearing in my praise of God

while I praise Him for such as you

for such as you

are the light of my world


because of you

I pray I too may burn

a holy fire for our Lord


I thank God for friends like you

for friends like you

bring me God
