I Am Amazed By You - Poem by Kwabena Eddie Mankata

I am amazed at the way you seem so far yet so near at the same time
I can’t wrap my head around the hand that chastises and pampers at the same time
How can you be the sun and shield at the same time?
And be the cloud providing light and darkness at the same time?
I am amazed by you

Maybe I was scared because you are too good to be true
I was worried I would wake up one day and all would seem far from true
That the grass would turn brown
And the sky, dark from blue
But the longer I wait
The greener the grass gets
The brighter the sky looks
And all that’s in between glitters in an emerald hue
I am amazed by you

Now I don’t have to fight my battles alone
Or go through the motions of uncertainties alone
Because you are too close to the brokenhearted
And reside with the poor even below
Words can’t translate the feeling of knowing you’ve got things under control
I lean on your amazing grace
Till we meet face to face
I am amazed by you, God
And I thought you should know
