The Stained Glass Window



The Stained Glass Window

The rain falls in its marvelous way 
Hitting everything in its path
I watch as it falls down a stained glass window
Oh how beautiful it is
The colours are brightened 
The people of heaven come alive from the window
And then I can see
I can see all the colours of the rainbow
 The colours flood onto the window 
I can see the sun shining down on everyone 
Letting it's rays illuminate all the living things in the world
From every spec of pollen to every blue whale
Even the sun shines onto this little stained glass window 
This little thing
It can be so alive 
Yet, this window is not living
It does not breathe 
It has no heartbeat 
It cannot feel
Yet it is so alive 
It is alive inside
In our hearts 
In our minds
In our souls
Everything has a heartbeat 
You just have to listen closely to hear it.
Even a little stained glass window has a heartbeat
