POEM 262: YOU’RE MY SONG, JESUS
you simplify my complexity with a melody
and unravel my fears with songs.
you assay, with laughter, my anxiety
and by faith make blunt all thongs.
when I dangle on a looping dirge
you caress, with grace, my fainting soul
your promises are no mirage
therefore unashamed I hinge my hope
on every line, verse, jot, tittle
written in your timeless book of truth
and when I wander away in wanderlust
I shall lean, again, in your direction
you’re the melody of unfailing love
you’re my song, Jesus
