I Just Might...
by Sarah Bricker
In the long day’s busy rush,
In time’s ever ongoing crush,
There is so much I do not see,
Though it sits there smiling up at me.
But if I from work a moment took,
To stop and wait, to simply look,
To notice the beauty within my sight,
Could I find it? I just might…
Might notice trees from sleep awaking,
Running stream the silence breaking.
Might see geese returning from a winter’s flight,
Watch sparrows eat in early morning light.
Might find muskrat munching on the shore,
Find ducks a-dablin’, searching more.
Might find green just poking through,
Sun bathing all in gentle hue.
Might spy the flight of feathered wing,
Hear how the birds in glory sing.
Might watch sun sink golden in the sky,
Catch moon a silver sliver rising high.
Might see faithful friend beside you all the way,
Face of lover smiling back at break of day.
Might find God’s glory everywhere,
If I just pause to see it there.
