Father above,
Everything has changed. I have changed.
Sometimes I mourn my innocence that is gone.
It was easier then.
But as the innocence ebbed away I learned
The tolerance You told me I needed.
As the hurts compiled I learned
The forgiveness You said was essential.
While my attention drifted, You waited
Patiently, and when I searched for You,
You embraced me. When my doubts plague
From the recesses of my mind I close
My eyes and ears, and relive those moments
That convinced me of the truth. What keeps me
Walking, breathing...hoping, is the knowledge
You are there. I am so unworthy, yet
You wait for me. Thank You.
It is not enough, but it is all I have
To give... Thank You.
