Some memories concern, effrontery
is always yearn, like countenance sojourning.
Unkinds its words in retrospect's home turning,
first lifts remind, then drops behind with slurring!
So I can find in grace's mind occurring,
as when thy presence binds me with returning
to God's comply, a promise asking, burning,
like some residual's pry of my adjourning!
Why rest this heart in thy, if no ensuing
can ever bring apply, a new life hewing,
to greatness, you and I, God's will renewing,
togetherness and try, love's hope reviewing!
I want thy reason why ~
wavers like desert winds take sky, annulling
this faith awry ~ beset by dust storm's brewing!
