My Fall into Shadow

As a child, your influence was very strong
I pledged myself to your one and only son
I went to Sunday school, in my very best dress
and learned your verses, with what, I thought, was earnest.
One year we ceased going to your house of worship,
and my knowledge of you faded into doubt and shadow.

As a pre-teen, I claimed to follow you still
yet in the corners of my heart, my faith was doubtful
No longer did I feel you near,and instead there were fantasies
of knights, dragons, and magic spells that were apart from reality.
I sometimes felt your spirit reach out, but not enough to sway me.
For a new passion arose, one of shiny new technology

As a teen, I started to feel herded, back to the flock
my grandfather, you sent, to lead be out of the dark
He spoke of versus, and caused curious questions to appear
and that's what led me back, and erased the rest of my fear.

Now in the current age, I call out to my Lord
in hopes that my straying from the light path may, perhaps,
be forgiven, and that your spirit will help me and end my doubt
I am told you will answer your children, when they cry out.

It's true to say my heart is sorry, for straying from your arms
and now I feel you pull to your embrace, stronger than before.
and I wish to return to your warmth and eternal love.
I know you have forgiven, and you will lead my evermore,
and, perhaps, to those who faltered like me,
maybe I may help to lead the lost sheep back to safety.
