It’s in the silence that
I am hearing the questions.
The ones that need to be
The ones that are asking me
what I will yet lay down. give up.
A new home and life that shows
me I need to trust to walk is
It’s only the beginning.
And I see the depths that bring
this life. here. to full.
And I see the sun cresting the hill
I walk daily…it’s straining towards
this earth before me
and I see that beckoning.
You. Bidding me come.
Reminding of something I can
never seem to remember. The promise
ever real. The best yet to be.
Stepping towards you, letting go of
the grasping unyielding hands white
And I have multitude of times believed
the lie. that what I want to keep
is better than what you give.
Oh foolish woman I am…having tasted
though faintly, yet with the heights of
knowing in my have-lived days, I
know, that I know that I know that I…
You are best of all and you will give
beyond imagining the best that will
never pass away.
the heart is crying out for the freedom
of all that weak flesh that wants to
melt into what I think I need covering
the spirit, the yearning in me,
longing to be free.
