Sent by God [a #poem]

Sent by God
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor

Light within and between
fills the universe,
part by part,
eye by eye,
smile by smile,
breath by breath.

There are people who ignite your heart in an instant,
fill your eyes with grateful tears just by being.
You can’t look for them. They aren’t like that.

They’re just right there, sent by God to wake you up.
