I move to the life-offering light
As He comes closer, reaching out
I run and hide with fright
My life filled with doubt
Each day a new game of hide and seek

I move forward on tiptoe
Creeping toward His knowing gaze
Wondering at His powerful glow
Turning my face from the building blaze
Each day a new game of hide and seek

I seek to hide in the dark
So He won’t see my flaws
But I crave the life-giving spark
The light that continually draws
Each day a new game of hide and seek

I want Him to search my soul
I want Him to know me
Yet I want to hide in a dark hole
For He will not like what he will see
Each day a new game of hide and seek

The Shepherd finally reaches me
I cower before Him
He touches me ever so gently
I fear seeing His light dim
Each day a new game of hide and seek

His Light permeates my soul
Removing the darkness
And making me whole
As I finally surrender and say yes
The game of hide and seek finally over

He has searched my heart
And loves me still
Life and Love He will impart
As I surrender my will
I will not hide because he sought and found

I will now pass on the Light
Sharing its glimmer
Radiating throught the night
The fog reflecting its shimmer
So that anothers game of hide and seek can end

Beautiful poem with a wonder message. I especially enjoyed the 6th stanza.

I like how you show the desire for God to search your soul, and yet are afriaid to let Him. Very nicely done. Keep writing.
