At Arms Length Love


He walks with me.

We are not opposed.

Our stance is fortified

Arms linked

Side by side

For walks, He is there besides me

On hills, His shoulder bears the brunt

In valleys, His ear bears the cry

He walks with me

We are not opposed

Our stance is fortified

His grace is sufficient, enough

For me, He waits

In kindness, He rebukes

In patience, beckons my repentance

…Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it

Prone to leave my precious One…

He doesn’t leave

He doesn’t force me near

In His kindness I am drawn

At arms length, He is anchored, still.

Only I dangle the rope and run afield
