Golden Ribbon by Gary Bertnick

As a golden ribbon of prayers

Wraps about the new Heavenly body

Clothed in a robe of whitest white

Embroidered in delicate silver threads,

God’s beauty glows forever on display

In another of His “Chosen Ones”.

A metallic luster seen on the skin

In radiance from the King’s Throne of Holiness;

Kingdom joy has no limits,

Experienced in Heaven and on Earth

While Messiah’s Peace moves as a living fragrance

Carries within and without,

Angel wings powerfully lift the winds far beyond

Tenderly caress the waters of streams, of oceans;

Love completely covers the sky above,

Love covers the ground below.

Our Lord’s Kingdom patiently waited for this one,

And now waits for many others to be soon gathered

As a bouquet of splendor

Flowers of majestic delight that soar

Made ready, made known

To be set in the place of honor,

One brother or sister lost to the world

But found in Heaven’s gain

At rest before Eternity’s only King,

Before Eternity’s very Creator!

I wish she would give me a chance to profess my love to her. But she is too scared and prefers hiding. The only time I’ve ever seen her in a jovial mood, unbothered and relaxed, was…
