come home

March 20, 2017

i know we haven’t spoken
for far too many years
a distance which, for both i fear
has shed too many tears

i know that you feel cheated
and blame me when you’re mad
no more or less, than me i guess
though all i feel is sad

but every night you’ve spoken
i’ve hung on every word
and every prayer you’ve whispered
i promise it’s been heard

i beg you, rest the prophets’ words
their dogma and your fear
listen, grant your soul its voice
your father is right here

here, in strength, in breath, in thought
in all you have achieved
having had more faith in you
than you yourself conceived

proud, without ambition’s greed
of goodness said and done
of heart, of mind, of spirit full
in causes lost and won

yet darling one, i’ve missed you most
when pain has wracked your life
for little has meant more to me
than helping ease your strife

come home, renew my purpose
give me, as i gave you
the chance to love, to revel
in all your soul can do

waking hungry 2014

little and weak
barely a squeak
creates his meek meow

unable to see
but faith has he
fed he will be, somehow

her explanation

February 16, 2014

there is always a reason
she said
if not
if God’s really dead
if nothing moves fate
if love can’t create
then life is just something we shed

faith

she’s only six, but she can see
the rolling waves upon the sea
meet against the endless sky
and for the first time, wonder why
our eyes deceive us as they do
knowing something more is true
