I am more

Talking with You

Than conversing about You

Hearing from You

Than learning about You

Sitting with You

Than working for You

Remembering You

Than acquiring knowledge of You

Meditating on You

Than listening about You

Understanding You

Than explaining You

Wrestling with You

Than debating about You

Enjoying You

Than summoning You

Walking with You

Than living for You




It was an accident

With no intent



They happen

These accidents

In a moment


Accidents every day

Unavoidable they say

What ifs unrelent

Was it me

Broken glass on the floor

Stubbing my toe on the door

Full of accidents

Life is seemingly

Will there come a day

With no more accidents

Hard to believe

If that day involves me

Then You remind

With words ever so kind

Eternity awaits

Accident free

In You there is no capacity

For accidents

Just great intent

On Your Beloved willfully

O how I long

For that moment’s reality

Where every accident

Is a distant memory
