I Watched You Save a Child

Posted on Updated on

I watched you save a child today,

With that soft spoken demeanor,

That free-spirited radiance.

It was beautiful and impressive.

I watched as they lay dying,

Begging for help so quietly,

Not knowing how bad it was.

How permanent their choices were.

Watched as you reached out to them,

As you filled them with your spirit,

As life leaped in their direction.

I saw the light in their eyes going out,

Slowly dimming out in a grey puddle of mist,

And restarting.

I watched as you wrapped them up in your arms,

And carried them to safety.

And as I watched I was overcome,

With such compassion and love.

That now I want to see you save another one,

And another one,

And another……

I saw you save a child
