love and grace

there’s nothing quite like it
nothing else even comes close
to the joy I see in your smile
hovering there beneath your nose

if I could capture it for time
or hang on eternally
I’d hold the look there in your eyes
when you’re smiling down on me

love and grace,
truth and more
all these gifts are at my door
since you decided to let me in
since you agreed, yeah, since then

don’t ever want to lose it
never let it slip away
or grow old with passing time
watching it grow beyond its size
bigger than it was when
you asked me to sit down and try

love and grace,
truth and more
all these gifts are at my door
since you decided to let me in
since you agreed, yeah, since then

  1. She walks in beauty, like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
    And all that's best of dark and bright
    Meet in her aspect and her eyes Quote: Lord Byron

  2. The world is a mirror of Infinite Beauty, yet no man sees it. It is a Temple of Majesty, yet no man regards it. It is a region of Light and Peace, did not men disquiet it. It is the Paradise of God. It is more to man since he is fallen than it was before. It is the place of Angels and the Gate of Heaven: quote: Thomas Traherne
