The 'The's' of Life

The grace of second chances
Flowers upon the air
The love of God romances
Our spirits from despair

The hope of heaven glimmers
In faith’s determined eye
Though oft earth’s sorrow shimmers
Where loss and longing cry

The pantomime of moments
Ripples; its rampant course
Fills far and phantom oceans
Of eons without force

The ebb and flow of leaf-song
Embellishes the sod
We ride the tide of seasons
Ever nearer to God
