find rest

July 10, 2009

 

I am free to be myself

In the presence of a friend

There is no need to perform

It’s there I find rest

 

I’ve been trained to think

To watch closely for my friends

Who show up on time

 

Intimate friendship

Is where I have discovered

How to listen well

 

I had to face the darkness

Of my own self-centered life 

See the darkness of others

Before I could see

 

There are very painful truths

Places we seek to avoid

They’re plenty of distractions

That will block the light

 

When I’m with a friend

Who knows the truth about me

I find I can rest

 

That’s what God is like to me

It is based on truthful facts

A friendship over the years

That’s bigger than death
