You at the Center

You at the Center

You, at the center,  appease my fright

A kid’s heart, at that

Like a hand that reaches from a slope

Like flesh that waits a hug

Like a father eager for a kiss.

You have always loved me

And my needing self

My asking self

My stubborn self.

My endearment of you makes you want me even more.

My grit surprises you, my aches, my glory.

You are my home, builder of my ruins –

As I am your falling star

Your rising stars, your one darling,

You never doubt my love.

You, at the center, appease my heart.

Halos on your head, fill me tenacity

Lights of your promises, empower me vitality.

You, at the center, appease my heart

One Sacred Heart, my Lord  and my God –

Don’t leave me.
