I Saw A Saint

I Saw a Saint

Today, I went to buy some herbs and saw a Saint,

And tears came to my eyes but I fought them so that no one could see,

Today, I went to buy some herbs and saw a Saint,

A Saint who loves so much that her husband works two jobs and puts in 90 hour work weeks to keep her dream alive,

A Saint who loves so much that her son and daughter adore her,

A Saint who loves so much that an entire community rallies behind her to make her dream real,

For she dreams of life,

She dreams that all would live and live mightily,

Today, I went to buy some herbs,

Powerful, beautiful herbs that bring my body life,

But I saw a Saint and though I believe that herbs are helpful,

I am drawn to her market not for the herbs, but for the smiles I see that reach into my soul.

Robin, Paul, Ruth, Dan, Eric, and this little angel, their smiles reach into my soul and help me feel the warmth of God almighty,

Today, I went to buy some herbs, powerful herbs,

But I saw a Saint with a dream so beautiful that tragedy tried to destroy it,

But some dreams cannot die so easily, for God has ordained them from the beginning of time.

Today, I went to buy some herbs and saw a Saint,

Whose love and resilience warms my soul,

And these tears I cry are not of sorrow but joy,

For today when I saw the smile on her face, I knew that her dream would not die, but that it would live into love everlasting,

And so I write this expression, to the Saint who sells herbs but really brings love everlasting to everyone she touches,

Ruth, the hero of old!!!
