About the Poem
This poem I wrote outside of my church. I was having a very rough week due to personal problems, however found enlightenment through a grandchild who hugged me and told me she loved me, a very old woman who smiled at me as she shook my hand in church, and my best friend and roommate who has been an inspiration to a lot of my poems.

I Found God Today
|by Tommy Q
I found God today through the eyes of a child
He looked up at me and he gave me a smile
He brought me such comfort for which I have longed
Through the eyes of a child I realized I belonged
I found God today in an old woman's face
As she held my hands, I felt God's embrace
From problems in life I knew I would prevail
Which I felt through her hands so old and so frail
I found God today in the warmth of a friend
Who has given me strength for which I can depend
When life had me down and I felt so depressed
I realized through my friend just how much I was blessed
I found God today when I searched for so long
And it's now I realize, he's been there all along
In family and friends and in all who I see
Each day I find God and now I've found him in me
