day 59

If my father and mother
         forsake me,
   the LORD will take me up.  Psalm 27:10

when folks padlock
      their hearts so
      i can't get in;
when the world
packs my belongings,
   leaving the suitcase
   out on the front
      porch when i
      arrive home from
   life;
when friends
continually change
their mobile #s,
      so i can't
      reach them,
            you
gather me
in your arms,
   enveloping me
   in grace.
