heaven’s eyes by Anna Delamerced ’16

i can’t see you but i want to know that

you are there (should i feel it in my bones?)

like meeting a friend for coffee and a chat

or catching up with a brother on the phone

 

i can’t see you but i want to know you

like a child who knows his mother’s hands

even when his eyes are closed through and through

(but sometimes i really can’t understand)

 

one day i hope, i trust, to touch your face

like a boy waiting to be adopted

jumping into his new father’s embrace

gasping that he had always been wanted

 

what’s seen now, is here temporarily,

but what is unseen, lasts eternally

 

Anna Delamerced is a senior concentrating in Public Health.
