The Gate Sits Open


The gate sits open with no one getting out
My heart feels empty filling with doubt
Where once there was life
Is now quiet space
Crowing and cooing have been erased
And replaced
With wind
And stars
And new dreams
Heart bursting at the seams
Leaving a life I dreamed about
Longed for
Our fourteenth move
But who's keeping score?
A new home awaits
On a mountaintop
Full of possibility
Knocking walls out
Can't stop
Behold I am doing a new thing
Says my God on high
He knows I am sad
But says "give it a try"
Trust Trust
One step
And then one more
Heart trembling
Like a kid In a candy store
Into the mountains we go
Playing in the snow
Hearts overflow
