Listmates,
Yesterday, I received word from a cyberfriend that her mother had passed on. It seems that recently there have also been several from this list who have lost parents or spouses to this terrible disease we know as Alzheimers. As one who would be surprised if his own mother is still here by the end of this year, I started wondering what she would try to tell me from the other side, if she were indeed able to speak to me from that dimension. I came up with this.

The Face of God

I have seen a face not beheld by man,
He holds me gently in the palm of His hand.
I cannot describe the love in His eyes
Or the words that dried the tears that I cried.
How can I tell you of the way that I feel?
My body is whole, Oh My! I am healed!
The body you see is not really me.
That's just the shell of what used to be.
There's no more pain, my mind is clear,
And God Himself has wiped away my tears.
The joy I feel is impossible to tell.
But I wanted to tell you that all is well.
I hope that God will help you to see,
That at last, at last, I am finally free.
I have seen a face not beheld by man,
He holds me gently in the palm of His hand.
For years I've prayed this would be my lot,
And now I have touched the face of God.
