Where have I seen you before? Peeking in the window during my worst mistakes Jotting down my words and placing then in the seat of regret There you were watching with wet eyes You hated your job but laughed often You begged and pleaded with me Why when the waves wash over the shores Why when the squall knocks down the tent Why do I forget you immediately How lovely you are daughter of the word Your existence anchored in creation A thread of thought attached to God There are times where we are locked in step You with your eternal perspective Me with my existence & physical body You a sheaf of papers and a listening ear Me obedient and in love with the father Your name is wisdom, mine is child The wisest thing I have ever done Was to get up when I fell turning my eyes to the Lord
