by Mike Hall

It’s been awhile since our last conversation –
my fault, not Yours.
Why is it I continually drift away when things are good?
only to come back when the weight of life seems too heavy.
I know the busyness of life isn’t an excuse to be offered,
for not taking the time for a simple conversation.
Thank You for still being here to listen.
I know these conversations are more for my wellbeing –
   a way for me to reconnect,
   calming my anxious spirit,
   centering my mind once again,
   filling me with hopefulness.
I will try not to let this become a mindless routine
but one where my heart is filled with respectful sincerity.
I know this is how You want our conversations to be.
If I were You, I would have given up on me long ago.
Thank You for Your patience and loving devotion.
Until next time, I remain faithfully Yours.
