The Wrestling Game

Have you ever felt
Your nerves disagree
Had your brain and heart
Far from each other flee

Have you ever reasoned
Opposing forces to the ground
Like a wrestling match
With no words or sound

Have you made up your mind
To change it again
Talked yourself silly
To let it go to the wind

How many times
Have you layed it down
To have it come back
Like a boomerang rebound

I tire of this game
Can't keep out of mind
This worry that plagues
Makes me rewind

Yet still I will try
Again and again
To let it all go
Make it die with my pen

After all I confess
I did my very best
Followed the signs
Given at my request

And if I should fail
I'll follow Thomas Edison's advice
I'll keep up my trying
No matter the price

The Surprise of Spring

Forgive me dear Father
For missing your grace
I searched just to find you
But couldn't see your face

I mourned your absence
When hope wouldn't brew
All the while you were with me
Blessing me as only you do

You were there right beside me
Ever lifting my face
Danced for joy in my laughter
Pulling me up from the dark place

Yet still I wondered
Where you were in my plight
My spirit grew low and dark
Though you still held the light

Until one fine day 
When the sun arose
And I finally saw 
Right in front of my nose

The beauty around me 
Popped full into view
Wonderous surprises
Filled my heart anew

Everywhere I looked
Your hand and heart moved
The dance ever swaying
Your love ever proved
