~ One Leaf's Heart ~

I hold the leaf within my hand
And twirl it to and fro,
My mind does convolutions
Wondering what I know.

Not much, I softly whisper...
Such intricate design,
The mind of God I cannot tell,
The depths of love divine.

But, this I see while twirling there
And gazing at the form,
The lacy pattern, veins unfurled,
Crimped edge, so uniform.

Dear God, I love Your autumn leaf
You made for me to view,
I stroke it's softness, can't I keep
This tiny part of You.

Why, do You let them fade away
Break down into the earth,
What is it You are telling me,
About life, and death, and birth.

Our lives begin and grow like this
In color, each unique,
To bloom, then reach our peak,
With so much more to seek.

This awesome life You made soon fades,
We cannot grasp to keep,
This lovely earth is not for aye,
But death, is life, we meet.

Yes, we shall rise, to live anew,
No breath in You is lost,
But, die we must, to find the life
You powered by the cross.

Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems June 2009
Poetry From The Heart

Each moment, whispering of eternity,
streams into our world, to lovingly unfold
-in all we see and hear-
the very heart of God.
