A Poem: A Plea and a Praise

You are the best part of me

from the early hours of the morning

through the weaning light of the evening

You are what makes me lovely


You put me on like a glove

You made me for Yourself

You are the oil

that lights the lamp deep within me

that shines for all to see


Lord, deal with me

according to Your mercy.

I am chasing him

while You are chasing me


This division in my heart

it tears me apart

I don’t think I should feel this way

about the right counterpart


Have Your way in me Lord

because I can’t afford

to be lead by my emotions.

For they shift like the direction of the wind

oh, how easily I bend

and break like the waves in the ocean.
