We never know their names

We never see their faces

We don’t know who they are or where they live

but they are all around us

Anonymous, hiding in plain sight

Saving lives and saving souls

Mending bruises and mending hearts

Making peace, making love

Holding lamps in the darkness

so others can see their way

Creating calm in the eye of the storm

They will never be in your newspaper

You won’t see them on the tv

Let us celebrate the nameless

who are known to no one

except God

and God will pour out on them

all the blessings of eternity.
