Terror in the night

Terror in the night
terror in the storm
terror, everywhere, terror:
God my help, come and find me
for I know not where I am

The enemy prayer

They may see me as their enemy
but may they not be enemies in my heart,
for there are only so many chances to love in this lifetime
only so many chances to be transformed

The perpetual lift

Sometimes you protect me from the stupid things I do
and other times you expose me, hoping that I learn;
both ways are pure compassion, for even when I fall
there I am, on the ground and wiser
there you are, the perpetual lift

One pathway there

Testing leads to trust
trust leads to following
following leads to submission
submission leads to a million glowing stars

Opening door, glowing light

Opening door, glowing light
joy and sorrow enmeshed
as I leave the old behind

Tending hope

Tenderly I wash the wound
and know that wholeness will come

That feeling that something is missing

If something is missing, come first to me, God says
and I will fill every hole;
or you can come last to me
and I will still fill every hole,
but there will be many more of them
