Like a Son Returning Home

     Like a Son Returning Home

Like a lamb or mule or goat, I come,
My home is simple, yet is Your abode,
Of mysteries and riddles, I am dumb,
But, follow ever faithful on Your road.
Like a shepherd tending flocks, I come,
My heart needs staff and rod to find the Way,
Since where I go or where I’m coming from,
Untended by Your guidance, leads astray.
Like a wise man from the east, I come
To find a greater wisdom shining bright
Upon confusion, You divine the sum,
And move me from the shadow into light.
    Like a son returning home, I come
    To end where truest love had first begun.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
