It Came

With the swiftness of lightning yet the grace of eternity,

it pearced through light and haze, defying the heavens to name it!

Its destination was the hearts of man :

to cure, to kill, to restore and to relieve.

If just one soul had caught its glimpse,

we would have been released form its shadow...

But no-one knew,

they just talked and cried.

But never gave to be allowed to receive...

so it passed...
