If Ever You’ll Sing To Me Again

If Ever You’ll Sing To Me Again

(A tribute to Whitney Houston and to the God who made her.)

My heart hastens
as I listen
to hear
when you’ll sing.

When you sing,
my ears awake;
the angels fret
– their jobs at stake –
when you sing.

When you sing,
words blaze;
I try to speak,
they burn my voice,
“My soul, rejoice!”
in God’s praise
when you sing.

When you sing,
the mountains
stamp their ancient feet,
the skies flow
with crimson overcast,
the birds quiet,
the rivers clap watery hands
against their rocky banks
in thunderous applause
when you sing.

When you sing,
the earth
stands
still,
and yet time flies;
tears fill my eyes
when you sing.

When you sing,
it soothes, reclines,
it’s peace divine,
it’s spoken wine,
fine
when you sing.

When you sing,
you bring a choir,
Heaven nears,
I reach higher to grab it;
you ditch that habit
when you sing.

When you sing,
my heart hastens
as I listen
to hear
when
– if ever –
you’ll sing
to me
again.
