In An Instance With You - Poem by Dave Corey

In all I have ever known
In all my life, no matter what I would do
I never thought someone as you could be shown
Or my heart be so, in an instance with you

What could my life be like
Could I live long and bold
Could my entire heart be for smite
Would it be you I would long to hold

What does this mean for me
All of my plans gone, what of my dreams
Now God has for me what is he
I must obey take his hand let him lead

All through my life I have known what I'd be
I never paid attention, took for granted
At sunrise, I fought to say asleep
Now I must submit, this world is in need

The passion in my heart grow ever so more
There is nothing to my heart you can depress
In all of my days and my travels and galore
I never stopped once, not ever to rest

So even now, as I lay here asleep
While I cry on my pillow and lay here to dream
As my tears roll down my eyes and straight down my cheeks
Never will there be a love more sincere then of me

My heart is a mirror of the soft touch of God
I cannot control it's wrath nor leave it to be
I will share all that is me, of him, God
I will never hold it in what he has given me

To those who I see and
To those who are true
They will see in my eyes
I long only for you

For his love is not so small that it is merely contained
In the small of my heart or of this earth in its pain
It is larger than life or of one single man
But it starts in ones heart, in the could if it can

Unto death it shall live and continue to grow
Unto all that we love and all that we know
In all that I say and all that I'll do
I will live my whole life for one instance with you

Could my tears show you who I am
Does love show my whole heart through
Would my life be all that God had planned
Or would it be enough in an instance with you

In an instance with you I could love your whole life
In an instance with you make you forever my wife
In an instance with you All these things I would do
I would give up my life, for an instance with you
