I Believe In You

I believe in you,
With a heart of infinite love.
For you are like a pebble bashed and beaten by the breaking waves,
That emerges from the tumult a polished stone of extraordinary beauty,
That captures life in its entirety;
A thing of wonder, joy
Incomparable strength
That life-lovers and soul-seekers reach out and touch
Just to know its story,
To know that it is lovely
And that it survived.
