Yesterday You Called My Name And I Refused To Listen


 
Yesterday you called my name
     And I refused to listen
 
     It was as though your words
          Drifted to me
               On a line
                    Of disconnection
 
          A broken chord
 
I looked away
     And refused to acknowledge your offer
          As though by ignoring your presence
               I could allow….
 
     I could create a greater distance between us
          Than I know exists in truth
 
Back turned
     Arms folded
          Eyes closed
               Head turned away
 
          All a meaningless gesture
               Truly
 
     An empty gesture
          To ward off that which you offer
 
           ‘That’ being,
               Nothing less than pure
                    Love
 
                    What will happen now?
 
     Only time will tell
 
But if I had my choice?
 
     I’d reach out my hand
          And take the one you offer
 
I’d let the words you speak
     Touch my heart
          Slip inside
               And explode there
          Enough to fill all the emptiness
               I’ve experienced
                    Without you in my life
 
     I’d turn myself toward you
          And let the light of you
               Fill me completely
 
          I’d breathe that in
 
               I’d breathe that in
                    In a long
 
                         Slow
 
                              Breath
 
     Then I’d walk away
          Knowing you had touched my soul
               In a way to strengthen, not limit me
 
Help me find a way to trust your light
     There is nothing I want more,
          Than to feel its touch
 
Be gentle
     It will take a lot of patience
          While I process all the possibilities
 
Amen to your loving heart
 
          I’m looking your way
 
               I’m leaning in your direction….
