To my Sweetheart, Dressed in White
By Appreciable Goodfaithpoet
There you are, in flawless white.
As a brilliant star, through gloomy night.
I love your soul, and I'm glad to be
Bound by our goal to partake from God’s tree.
We're sealed forever, and though we die,
We'll soon be together, You and I.
I do not recall, time preceding this life.
Yet, someday I’ll know all about you my wife.
Someday this veil, which hides the past
Itself will fail, and part at last.
I then shall know, the one by my side
As we both go, up to God and abide.
So, before the casket closes, I’ll kiss you one more time.
And know that like our roses, next spring you’ll be sublime.
Yes, then I’ll know you fully, as in blazing light we dwell.
In the presence of the holy, and the great Immanuel.
