Lenten Meditation: Dawn



I awoke

This morning

Before first light,

The peace

Of the night

Embracing my soul,

To discover

That I still

Walked

This earth --

God must yet

Have need

Of me.


But, I have

Weary eyes,

Sore limbs

And

Slower steps

These days.

I come to Him

With

Damaged

Offerings


“So did my Son,”

God told me

As Dawn

Caressed

The sky.
