tonight

tonight i drove
windows down
through fields of pale green
thick juicy scent
of springtime
enveloping me
and I hurtled
70 miles an hour

i raised my hand
in worship
to touch You
trying to touch You
crying
i crested the hills
and felt i might fly
straight into Your arms

(i didn’t)

i drove home
tear tracks down my face
God-plaster filling the cracks
in my heart
You hold me together
all these pieces
these scattered pieces
never leave Your palm

i chose You
when i was tiny
i choose You
daily
You chose me
i don’t know why
but there it is

Thank You
