We see them daily in the street
many we see, but few we greet
they are but faces in the crowd
some heads held high, some sadly bowed.

We see them on the train, the bus,
Just people they, annonymous.
we know not of their hopes or fears:
nor share their sorrows or their tears.

We are to them, as they to us,
famous maybe, or imfamous;
yet one there is beholds us all.
he knows and sees a Sparrows fall.

To God,who sees them,you and me,
there is no anonimity.
He knows all we say and do,
and understands us, through and through.

Complete and absolute His sight,
His knowledge, too, is infiniite;
Therefore no single one of us
can be to him anonymous.

I thought this was appropriate to go with your poem grungly. Psalm 139 :hpy

Psalm 139
For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

1 You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.
19 If only you, God, would slay the wicked!
Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
your adversaries misuse your name.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord,
and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

When we celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary, the "Silver" one, we read Psalm 139 as it said everything we wished to say and live by.
Thank you for posting it, Daisymae, it is so special to my Hubby and myself.
