GOOD LOVE

You know me in my higher aspirations

And when I’m in a trying, troubling mood

In either you maintain loving relations

For which I feel eternal gratitude

 

The love we know and our fidelity,

The good life our love creates together

Gives us each a place of stability

In a world of inconsistent weather

 

I am pledged to you and you to me

In joy, in trials, and in confidence

We’ll be together to eternity

And live the timeless now as lovers and as friends

Angels

I know the way angels work

You can, too, if you don’t yet

I’ve seen the way angels work

They work for you, too, if you haven’t noticed yet

 

It’s hard to tell in the moment

They don’t compel, but their ways always work

You see this in retrospect

You see this with relief, with astonishment, with thanks, with gratitude, with worship

 

With astonishment that it worked out

With relief that you were saved

With thanks, with gratitude that good prevailed

With worship, that God oversees our doings.
