day fades, I sigh
my breath escapes me like air squeezed from a punctured tire
emptied of strength because I have put my hands to what has been asked of me
from a Father who knows how far I can run
He takes a moment for as long as I will listen
reviewing better steps to be made tomorrow
then filled fresh, like a tired water bottle ready to be placed in the fridge
and waiting till morning to be reused
for tomorrow, we run again!
night drapes around me like a heavy warm coat on a frosty morning
tranquilizing peace subdues the rushing thoughts of today
like a deep breath after touching the bottom of a pool.
heavyness seems to run off as water
and joy fills me quickly like the crest of roller coaster.
I am still again.
and full of my Fathers love..
and I forget why I didn’t remember sooner…
and remind myself to remember.
