Eastern View Beach: Where the Road Turns

Epiphany 2018

That You will not let us go,

though in our going stay with us,

and not reproachful nor alarmed

but listening, watchful even with us

in human form and divine,

then I have courage.

That You will not let us go,

though it may be so that we

ourselves turn and stray,

alone under the too hot sun

or shivering under the night sky,

then I have hope.

That You will not let us go,

we who wander off perpetually

perplexed and tired, cynical as some

who cannot even trace Your language

in our vast creation’s grace,

then I have faith.

You who will not let us go:

help us pray, who cannot pray,

and stay with us

though we go away.
