My Home of Peace

The changing state from day to day

Speaks not the truth of who you may…

Be, have been,

Or who you’ll be,

Whether completeness day is far or seen

 

Today you do, tomorrow not

Tonight may be a night of rot

But sleep or move,

Or rest or fret,

The Great Good Shepherd holds you yet

 

 

 

To seek a rest in arms not seen

Yet feel the warmth of where they’ve been

The striving, searching,

Me – adrift,

Awaits these arms in love to lift

 

Oh, grant the peace of where you are

To me, whose life still feels afar

Bring to me,

Then bring me to,

The Peace of home, which is with you

Unsteady

Mad with you

Mad with me

Madness with uncertainty

Unsteady hands

Unsteady legs

Unsteadiness of thought – imbeds

 

Happenings go undiscerned

Happenings – unknown concern

Happenings are happening

Happenings go undeterred

 

The Lord, my shepherd, never fails!

When lost in thought, he does prevail

My constant threats, he will assail

I trust him now, though I may wail

 

Shepherding for all my good

Directing others to where they should

Be willing, able, so they could

Under-shepherd, this son of blood

 

I am a son of shepherd love

Dependant not, on how I come

Though once I worked and strived to be

I now must rest in love, in he

Love

Oh, love; on earth’s elusive

Oh, love; what should you be

Oh, love; defined existence

Not love devised of me

 

I love; but with distortion

I love; but selfishly

I love; yet incompletely

Oh that Love, would love make me

 

Love’s desire; the best for others

Love’s desire; not giving in

Love’s desire; to show true favour

Of others, though undeservedly

 

Love is value; Love is constant

Love is humble; Love’s secure

Love is truth, belief and hope

Love is all that will endure

 

Love will stand and not be moved

Love, a compromise will not

Love is ever only constant

Sit under Love or wander lost
