Harbour Lights

There was a moment

When glory and love


Suspended in time

Flooded the void

With waves of grace

Danced through the chaos

Danced to the sound of life

Danced with the spirit

And the rhythm of embrace

And vibrations flood

Resounded in the silence

He held the stars

He soothed the seas

He commanded the dawn

He lit the skies

And with a towel

Bending low

He washed their feet

He healed their wounds

He loved the broken

He fed the hungry

And one day

He will wipe away every tear

That danced down every cheek.
