The Left Hand

I spent all my years believing in You
I tried the best I could
I Loved my neighbour as myself
I Loved them better still
I cried on my own
when I was sad
tried to seperate my goods from my bad
I asked to send me somebody to Love
And you reached out to me with your left hand
Oh God I will not let go of you
I will wrestle with your left hand
I will hold onto your left hand
I will not
I can not
I shall not
Let go
teach me
will you please show
how I can better what I have done wrong
not untill at last I hear a song
till then I cleave to Your Left hand
and keep reaching for Your right.
Untill I fully understand
Untill my eyes you open wide
Untill then the pain of your Left hand
for me will guide.
Untill I see the Light
And I am on your Right
I will not let go.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
