“Found in the Forever”, a poem from L.Willows” (Eternity, comforted, God’s Kingdom, Faith)

In near distance
you walk,
a life set free.
Glory, I see
the marks left in our tree.

In yesterday’s branches,
we all climbed so high
There in the mystery
you reached to the sky.

Oh, how I listened
and watched all that grew
Miracles all,
they seemed fastened
to you.

Wait,
can you see
very far from there?
Imagine a world
without time or care.

Found in the Forever
that dances somewhere
There to become,
to announce at God’s Door.

Open, say open-
Hearts of Love pour.

In near distance you walk,
a life set free
Glory, I see
the marks left in our tree.
Yesterday’s branches
still aching heart-breaking.

Soaking in the joy
of season’s time taking.

Yearning,
my heart
does reach like a child
Lifted beseech,
in God’s why reconciled.

1 Peter 1:22 —Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart.

Revelation 21:4 —“and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
