Get Well

Traveling alone
I have found my need for others
And searching inside
Has shown me where the answers are not

But let me love now
Though I do not know the way
Let me love now
Though I do not know how.

I must trust
and learn to trust
That you are not in my life
for nothing.

Fragments from the Gospel Road

If you pretend to overlook an offense
It really isn’t love.

And resentment builds and it comes out
One way or another.

I love to find the best of things
And search them to the core
But dinner bells begin to ring
and my mind leaves the fore.

I would love to really love
And the older now I get
I realize just how hard it is
To even love myself.

Quick falls the pretense
When life is on the line.

I cannot pretend now
To be more spiritual
Than I really am today

My heart just can’t take the lying.

Love really is
The hardest and the best
The journey and the goal
God see me through.
