I was offered "The Life!"
I could have Anything!
I could do Everything!
I could be Somebody's Something!
I was Offered A Contract!
If I Did ...
Then He Would Do ... !
He promised he would Show Me A Good Time
With many of those things froufrou!
I was Disappointed!
I did not want to have Fun!
I wanted The Commitment!
I wanted Permanency even through The Strife and
I wanted The Covenant!
No Running Away!
No Possibility ever of
One of Us Walking Away!
I Turned and I ...
I Turned and I Walked - Not Quite Sadly - Away.
THEN I MET ... HIM!
He Offered Me The Covenant!
He Offered Me HIS Life!
I will be His Forever but ...
My Life Will be Filled With Strife!
I will have to Endure Many Things!
I will have to Ignore Everything!
I must Believe that Despite Uncertainties that
The Good Life is at The End Of The Way of Suffering!
I Looked in His Eyes - a Burning Flame
His Heart is Plainly Revealed - Body Riven and Hole Pierced!
I Blessed The Almighty and
Our Covenant is Sealed - being with Him gives Me No Disgrace!
My Uncertainties Point To The Promise
The Promise Points to The Holy Way
The Holy Way is Certain - Laid Out
And I'm Walking with Him Day By Day!
When I'm Down He Lifts Me Up!
When I'm Happy I Sing To Him - and I Pray!
And all the while - No Matter The Matter
He Speaks To Me and there is No Smell of Truth Decay!
I Met Him and We Married!
I walk with Him - He cannot Stray
And I know when This Life is Over
In New Life We'll be Together
For Ever, and Ever More
On That Wholly Holy Peaceful Blessed Shore!
