I knew you were beautiful when you said hello
and came over to sit next to me

We chatted easily and I didn’t feel nervous
and you didn’t ask of me  questions without answers

I knew you were beautiful when you gifted your time
and spoke to me….not as a victim with wounds on show
but as a person of purpose and mission

We spoke of futures and horizons
We spoke of bravery and focus
We spoke of our Lord’s love and will
I spoke…. you spoke… we both listened

Then you left
and I was certain I’d just met God
