slowly surely

I woke up today
fumbling through a morning
and most of an afternoon
grasping at direction
that yesterday was sure.

I’m told you are my shepherd
and, yes, I do believe
you bring me to rest
lead me to places
where refreshing awaits.

Thus it’s you I turn to
even as I float in this haze
to pull me back
into the clarity
of your embrace.

I stumbled through
the darkest corners of my soul
the old-faithful evils
still overwhelmed
by your grace.

The final word
is always yours.
Your beauty floods
my mind and heart
drenching my entire being.

I cannot shake
your goodness and love
they stay till the end
take me by the hand
lead me home.
