You Speak

"I am myself a word spoken by God. Can God speak a word 
that does not have any meaning?" Thomas Merton

You speak
and I breath the air 
that you imagine,

smile, and like the calling bird,
I rise to the sun!

But when my selfish soul
swells with self-
sent hell
you wake me, 
and expel me
from my troubled sleep.

Oh, I yearn for that day
when forgiven and
by your love
I'll steadfastly abide
in your constant light.
