I am trusting in the Almighty,
though having been so many times, a prodigal,
trying to make music a madrigal
to cover over the pain of estrangement
from my earthly father, whom I barely knew,
my confused arms stretching toward him
from an adult cradle, without knowing
I wanted to be blessed in my mental crib.
One day I walked away from the furniture,
and I wondered if Dad would be at the next corner.
Hardly all his fault, hardly none of my own,
fallen nature's conscience came to a crawl,
till one day the Scriptures pulled and called
holy living "Acceptable".*
Me acceptable to my Father above,
in the daily, living in His love?
If I take salvation given,
turn to Him each day, in holy living?
This is the affirmation an older man needed
to overtake the young man running,
pride of an eagle in my breast,**
knowing our Father cares, by the Spirit, in Heaven
* Romans 12:1
** Isaiah 40:31
