POEM: When an Adam Finds His Eve

I found out today that my brother Steve and his wonderful fiancee Heather both read this blog somewhat regularly. That's an inspiration by itself, so I post this poem to them in honor of their recent engagement. I think I wrote it seven or eight years ago.

When An Adam Finds His Eve

When an Adam finds his Eve
He can barely believe
What he is seeing.

All at once the world seems less broken
While he's standing and lookin'
At what he's been given.

For a moment he smells Eden
And the old sun is bright again
When he sees her smile at him.

If he only knew, it's a prophecy
Of the sunny day to be
When Jesus comes for you and me.
