Poetry: Singing with our eyes closed
As I sing with my eyes closed
and hear the voice of my sister
whom I do not know;
my deep voice the foundation
to her lighter and beautiful harmony
Praise God from whom….
I reach over and say “you have a beautiful voice..,”
which comforts my heart with eyes closed.
All Blessings flow…
She says “As do you” and moments later,
reaches over and hugs me…
Praise him all creatures here below…
Voices holding each other filling the room
This must be what Heaven is like…unity….
She holds me and I hold her as we harmonize through this hymn of praise…
Praise him above the Heavenly host…
Women have such an important place in the space of faith
Praise Father Son and Holy Ghost…
She hugged me like a mother, like a sister.
I needed that touch and I’m thankful she wasn’t a brother.
