In the Downtime

In the downtime,
When the struggles come,
You are still mine
Though it seems some -
Times I run away
With my eyes closed
Toward the sunrise
Toward God only knows.
It is then, when
Your love it hunts me down -
Where I've been
Matters far less now,
Than where you'll take me
After you pick me up;
How you'll break me
After you lift me up.
Because you want me
Only for yourself!
Your love it haunts me
Won't leave me to myself.
Like kitten crawling
To curl up in my lap;
A gentle calling
Which stirs me from my nap -
Your spirit cuts
Through my cluttered mind,
Captures my thoughts
In the downtime.
