Sometimes I can almost reach out and touch you,
it seems you are that close
and sometimes I can feel your arm around my shoulder,
so very real and welcome is your comfort...
And other times, I wonder where you've gone,
if you've abandoned or forgotten me:
in those times, Lord, I wonder if the close times
were only what I'd hoped for or imagined...
But then you're there again, just as before,
and I know that you are real, not just a dream.
I'm the one who comes and goes, Lord:
while you are faithful and unchanging in your love...
So when my fear, my anger and self-pity
blind me to your presence and keep me from your touch:
give me grace to wait, to wait for you, Lord,
until I find you once again right by my side...
