Forgiving PRESENCE

I pledge my allegiance,

To the one who sits with me.

No-one, no-thing, but Everything.

Never short of time,

Never out of patience,

Not a moment late…




Never tires of my endless declarations,

Repeat indecisions, or wearisome repitition,

My lack of faith, lack of hope, 

Or just basic lack,

My longheld sorrows,

My steady stream of questions, and arduous seeking.


You never seem to mind my trouble,

With accepting, believing and being,

In Your Loving Presence.

Divine Presence sits and waits,

For our attention…

Relaxed, eager,¬†forever alert, demanding nothing…


Like a puppy by his master’s side.

Funny, You Lord and Master,

Wait on us.
