In Her Eyes

In her eyes
Were tears
And in her heart, her fears
Had taken over the place
Where laughter used to hide
Ready to burst out
At the slight provocation.

What deep dark secret
Hide behind those mirrors to her soul?
Only she and God knew
But she didn’t know Him-
Didn’t know how to reach Him.

Others who knew her
Knew Him,
But didn’t want to hear
Her problems-
DIdn’t want to invade her privacy.

The ambulance took her away
Covered in a sheet head to toe,
And everyone gathered together
And asked the family
”What can we do to help?”

Why do we wait so long
To respond to a tear
In a friend’s eyes.
Or a word spoken out in desperation
Why don’t we hear?

Oh Father, Make us aware
Of other’s needs.
Make us able to respond lovingly
To the needs around us,
And Lord, surround us
With your love.

Let no quiet desperation
Go unnoticed,
No despair get hold
Of anyone we know,
And let us reach out
With love to strangers

As we reach out
In our love of you.

Thena
12/04/1982

As beautifully written, true, and needed today as it was then. No doubt.

Vintage as in "not getting older, getting better".
