Cathy M. Navin, at the International Society of Poets 2008 22nd Annual Poetry Convention and Symposium held in Las Vegas, Nevada, displayed her Nurturing Poetry and featured her poem “I Saw His Face”:
It was just one moment, when I saw His face
A moment of grace, and lasting embrace
A gift I cherish
I see His face, and all is calm.
My journey to the other side was all to brief
I longed to stay with my Maker, you see
When we can’t make sense of things,
and life’s climb becomes too hard,
I stop and call on the moment of grace
a fracture of a minute, when I saw His face
Then, like warm water covering me in baptism,
the symbol of dying with Him,
being resurrected with Him,
and walking with Him gives a peace of mind
to surpass all understanding of any mind.
His face, so illuminated my mind and heart.
I know my Father is near, we’re never apart!
