Dear body of mine,
Though you cannot see,
There are hopeful reasons to stay alive.
Please trust me.
And carry me another day longer.
One day at a time,
One day at a time.
I promise there’s a new day dawning,
If only you can bear the cross of all
That shields your eyes
From hiding joys of impossible tomorrows.
Stay with me old friend.
Please don’t forsake me in my sorrows.
But trust me unto the unfolding.
I am at your mercy.
For we are partners in a work,
Yoked together for as long as we can stand the fire.
And I love you more than you can know.
