Outside



Mingling in a crowd

Acquaintances many, friends few

Voices, loud music, noise all around

Alone, surrounded and . . . alone.



I see deep inside,spirit and soul

The mess, confusion, the yearning

I long to clean, clear and comfort.

Behold, I stand at the door and knock!



Weekly work, endless errands,

Temporary satisfaction, desperate daily.

Time is tick ticking, ticking away

Alone, busy and . . .alone



I understand you completely

I know the excuses behind which you hide

I want to be there, with you.

Behold, I stand at the door and knock!



Tripping, falling, lack of control

Veneer shows no need for help, inside shrieking

Clutching, clinging for one more day

Alone, empty and alone!



Donít keep me on the outside

Invite me in, ask and you shall receive.

Trust me to love you and cherish you

Always and forever, never alone!



Behold. I stand at the door and knock,

I am here, waiting . . . .

Answer my call beloved!

A plea for entrance. The shepherd stand without. Good pov.

I felt you chose your words carefully and could feel the thought behind this. Nicely done.
