In Your Heart

The winds push clouds across the sky,

the winds too clear to view.

Results, I see, but not the wind -

so tell me, is wind true?


I stumbled and I dropped a shoe,

then dropped my other shoe.

And no, I can't see gravity -

so tell me, is it true?


The thunder rumbled through the sky.

It scared both goat and ewe.

Though loud, I can't see thundering -

so tell me, is it true?


I memorized math tables that

began with 'two plus two'.

I cannot see equations though,

so tell me, are they true?


The fragrances from flowers seem

to greet my nose as glue.

But I can't see the fragrances -

so tell me, are they true?


The coffee flavors?  Plentiful.

I taste a special brew.

But I can't see what I can taste,

so tell me, are they true?


A special feeling, special love,

for children and for you.

But once again, I can't see love -

so tell me, is it true?


Creation is spectacular.

It's Heaven's sneak preview.

But once again, I can't see God -

so tell me, is He true?


The physical and spiritual

seem much too far apart,

but you will know that it's all true

when God is in your heart.
