I Want You; Come To Me (III)

“I want you to see Me when you look into the mirror,
That you’ll never be in doubt about who you are.

But there isn’t enough of you to have two masters;
There isn’t enough of you to seek Me with divided attention.

The Return (II)

“Alas, the choice was made –
Irrevocable by the edicts of free-will.
Though it broke My heart many times over,

Unneeded, unwanted even before birth;
Destined, not for this life or the next;
Overstaying my welcome; Overextending my reach;

Appreciated, needed, understood, celebrated, precious;
Guilty of having to leave too soon; Underestimating myself;
Under-using Grace; Abusing my strengths; Hiding behind my flaws;
Sabotaging and badly misjudging the extent of my reach.

Me calling you ‘father’ is a heavy responsibility I lay at your feet,
Which you take with grace.
