Poetry Time: One Moment

once His blood was enough to quench me
my stomach grew larger and fought all sweetness
His blood, His flesh no longer enough
my head grew larger and fought all reason
His love, His sacrifice could not satisfy
my heart grew smaller and fell away

if I could have just one moment with You…

my heart was too small to be broken,
my love too short to be noticed,
I may as well have been in the grave
among the skulls, the medals, the trinkets,
without Your penetrating light
to sear my soul
i gorged my stomach on what could never be
on what was so far from You

if I could have just one moment with You…

my eyes first turn toward the mysteries
that never could be mysterious enough
my hears perked to hear the story
that I thought I could best
and I found the greatest gift
that I could never have bought for myself

if I could have just one moment with You…
