In Speaking to God
I asked Him today,
how it is He measures,
like walking into a department store,
asking the clerk,
could you tell me which way.
I suppose they might lead you to the chosen …
wait a second I would say,
that’s supposed to be His plan.
When she got in the car, she was happy,
almost giddy her mood, smiling,
eyes did sparkle in a way,
that did let me feel her emotion,
and then I caught her reflection,
walking in to get her coffee,
her smile had turned to concern …
when she returned we did talk about why.
I asked her carefully, and while she said,
she didn’t know,
I listened to her breathing, suddenly halting
when then the tears began,
she told me,
it couldn’t be this way,
she needed …
and I completely understood,
we watched the sky create wonderful pictures,
to allow our imagination to stretch across the world.
I held her close for a time,
it seemed like only a second or two,
I wanted to forever,
so I might feel her breathing,
begin to settle inside my arms,
I knew I couldn’t though,
I at least had that moment, we knew that moment,
we cared about only having that moment.
He knew she would be ok.
