Yes Lord, I will go there

Yes Lord, I will go there

But only if you go there with me

into the unknown places in me

Only if the time is right

Yes Lord, I will go there.

 

Where terror wraps me up in night

Or anger makes me flinch and hide

I will go there though I fight

Yes Lord, I will go there.

 

For you are there and you are safe

Broken, bleeding and in pain,

Nails in hands and breathing faint,

My God, why have you forsaken me?

Yes Lord, I will go there.

 

So far from you I find my welcome

I am caught and ushered in

there you know me, you are with me,

Yes Lord, I will go there.

 

And there surprised by resurrection,

Fear as emptinesses fill,

peace with vulnerability

Yes Lord I will go there

 

But only if you go there with me

into the unknown places in me

Only if the time is right

Yes Lord, I will go there.

 

 A poem I wrote a few years ago, but that so often feels relevant!
