As I gaze into them, time loses its essence
I travel the universe with You. The stars become not a whole
But individual as You name them all
The splendor of space is overwhelming
You speak to me of planet Earth
My eyes rest upon it and its beauty is beyond words
A jewel among jewels
It is here You have chosen to start creation anew
Causing it to pulsate with life
It is here You create an image of Yourself
In one You call Adam
Through this one man comes life and death.
Death stalks the planet
And becomes life’s greatest enemy.
Your love for life is so great
You send Life itself to destroy death.
To do so, Life must die.
In this one great act,
Immortality cries out
O death, where is thy sting?
O grave, where is thy victory?
My journey ends as it began,
Gazing into your beautiful eyes.
I had been lost in time
As I was lost in you.
Because I have accepted Life
Death cannot claim me
And I will forever live in You and You in me.
