“I Heard Your Laughter in the Light”

I Heard Your Laughter upload 3
I heard Your laughter in the light
when tore I free from tangled snares,
my feet towards the orchards ran,
awaiting broken wings to heal.

Amidst the darkness was the light,
unseen but by my aching heart,
a blinding light, the brightest white,
that wove a cloak of golden warmth.

A laughter deeper than the sound
of thunderbolts among the clouds,
the mountain echoes of the wind,
and rushing waves upon the sand.

I hear Your laughter in the light,
‘Tis when I know that You are near,
as close as closer than my breath,
my Life, my All, my purest Love.
