When, Finally, I See Your Face by Leann DS

One day, when Jesus takes me Home,
Restoring me with perfect grace,
My eyes will see and heart will soar
When, finally, I see your face.

Familiar hand will reach for mine,
And pull me into warm embrace,
But all I'll want to do is stare
When, finally, I see your face.

You'll call my name to welcome me
From earthly plane to holy place,
But in your eyes, my name will shine,
When, finally, I see your face.

I will not recognize your lips
That for so long, my fingers traced.
But faithfully, I'll know it's you,
When, finally, I see your face.

So, I anticipate this day
When dark is filled with lightened space,
Your smile will say a thousand words
When, finally, I see your face.

Writing Prompt
A kyrielle is made of quatrains that rhyme. Each stanza (that is a quatrain) has a line that repeats, so a line from a previous stanza. That line usually (but does not necessarily have to) be the last line in the stanza. Each line in the poem has eight syllables. There is no limit to the number of stanzas. Usually there are three or more stanzas. Any type of rhyme scheme can be used. More information and an example.

This poem has two meanings: the first is a person who goes to meet Jesus Christ in heaven for the first time. The second is that of a blind person going to heaven and seeing their loved ones, literally, for the first time.

One day, Jesus Christ the Lord will glorify His people; the blind will see, the lame will walk and all will be restored in His image.

Philippians 3:20-21
But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
