Pencil drawing of Gladys Knight

Eight-year-old Gladys Knight
winning an award for singing in 1952
~
If you believe God is love
Then light doesn’t come from above
Like the glittering stars
Shinning down from afar
It must be something much nearer
It must be something much dearer
Like the look of a child
When they see something wild
A look of total delight
Not seen in a bird in flight
A look of devotion
Not seen in the ocean
Just like the light in an eye
When two lovers say goodbye
~

So touching...it's beautiful, and the drawing of Gladys Knight is amazing, I've always enjoyed Gladys Knight and the Pips :)

light in an eye when lovers say good bye??

Nick, I can't agree with the thought...

I don't think I can ever look into the eye of a person -- not in the least a lover -- when I would say good bye...

I believe in the philosophy "God is love."

but that would come as a solace sometime later as part of coping up :)

Nice art and poem too, loved the first lines :)

wishes,
devika

Both are wonderful. Love the pencil drawing. It's a sweet pose with the bowing.

The poem is lovely too....

Always a pleasure to visit you.

Nick, I like both the nice drawing and the moving poem.
Yes, God is love. We are milliards on the earth and He knows and loves us one by one.
