it’s complicated


Centered in a crowd
A woman stands alone
A red dress I remember

On a woman I’ve known
Though her back to me

I am certain it’s her

For this dream I have dreamed

And it is her, I am sure
The crowd swirls about

Dancing to and fro

Unconsciously orbiting
About her radiant glow
I join in the crowd

In hopes to see her face

A sight I long now miss

And evidence of God’s good grace
But try as I might

To enter her view

Distractions abound

Clouding what I know to be true

They tempt me to think

That they will satisfy my soul

They lure me away

From her and He who make me whole

This woman I knew

A gift from God I’d received
Now enveloped in lies
By which I am foolishly deceived

I cry and I pray

And I cry to this day

When I remember a hug

And a promise that it’d be okay

I know not what to do

With memories that remain

And pictures that brought joy

That now cause me pain
