This worries me.
I know I’m better than passes in the dark, better than quick kisses on the cheek as the lights go out. I can’t find comfort in the complacency, in the lukewarm bath. So, from there, I ask my questions, and, like Socrates predicted, I find my answers. You first loved me; this love convicts me. You call my name; this love convicts me.
Still, I worry myself.
For too long, every time You looked my way to soothe me, I retorted with a slap to Your face. And I heard the call, I heard the call, but I let it fall on deaf ears. What can I say to defend my self? Well, I could say I’m only a child. I’m too young in You. I don’t know any better… I couldn’t kid myself with that. Everyone knows excuses are excuses and there are none for what I have done…
That worries me.
See why I question how with no effort “I love You,” is vocalized? Someone deep in me is the one who says it, of this I am certain. Somewhere deep in my heart, body, mind, spirit, soul is me, and, with conviction, he speaks what I long to say. Relayed, he speaks:
“I love You.”
