Night Beauty

( By Jan Phillips )

The stars in your eyes
Are like the stars in the sky
When you are a child of God

There’s beauty in the night
That you may never see
Because you look with daylight eyes

If the opportunity ever comes for you to really see
The Heaven as I’ve seen it with my nighttime eyes
What a blessing that would be

There isn’t just a few bright stars that are easy to see
But out where there is no light
It looks like the sky has been sprinkled with glitter every night

Things that look like something in the day
Look totally different at night
Your mind can wander though the universe

Fear not the night just let your sight
Wander where it may in the night’s bright light
Look inside yourself where the beauty dwells

There is beauty in the night that disappears in the day
Fear not the things you cannot see
Just trust in the Lord and cling to Him

Make it a point to look at the moon and really see
God’s great work and what he gave us to be
He gave us the beauty at night as He did the day

I pray more at night than during the day
He probably has more time then
To listen to what I say.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

    I’m not much of a “musical” person, yet “Night Beauty” struck me as very melodic.I think the day/light/night,counterpoints worked very well indeed. “Superb”,just about covers it.

      Guess I am going to have to find a musician and see if I can get some of this down with music. Thanks Louis.
