The Smile of God

A poem by Sr Dewi, fcJ,
first appeared in the Weaving One Heart: Contemporary FCJ Voices blog

Life is crazy today!
between dramas and dreams,
sorrows and joys,
fights and hugs,
realities and hopes,
hardwork and playfulness,
silence and eloquence,
tiredness and leisure,
tragedies and celebrations,
cowardice and courage,
between you and me.

When I look up to God,
curious and uncertain

God looks down
and smiles
at you and at me
Without question, without demands
Just a smile
and a warm heart
brimming with love
for you and me
