It confused me when I understood
they didn’t know how to love me.
I set out to find a place
in which love was not unknown.
It frightened me when I understood
the emptiness surrounding me
was the reflection of my fear,
and pain the touch of broken shards
of a heart that would not weep.
One day I climbed a mountain top
to ask Your help to find my way,
you sent me two tornadoes down
to dance around me on that peak.
Despite my fear I would not run
I had no home in emptiness
I’ll choose to die before I flee
instead they blew away my fear
and my surrender set me free.
Now like the winds face
etched on the surface of a pond
I am only a reflection,
Your fear in rude flesh
a clown, invisible, an old man,
Perhaps crazy, and yet;
If you look closely at my eyes
you will notice,
that deep within them
behind your reflection,
I am smiling, in love.
