New Beginnings

New Beginnings

God
life is full of new beginnings
when I sense your eyes on me
help me to see through your eyes
   sights
     sounds
          smells.
I long for your
    straightness
     strength
         firmness
and the circle of your love
which will include those
   things
      people
            events
to which I am frequently oblivious.
Make me
     simple
        honest
            pure
that I may be at rest
     with you
       the world
           and me.
