My heart is crushing down to a dare
I breathe into its’ hollowed air
Would I find some secret rare?
Or be swallowed into the pulse of such hidden cares?
No love to meet, nor friend to greet here
in this secretive, wordless and swollen seat.
What hidden voices hide behind this heart’s heat?
Oh dread, there is a pause from what I may find near.
Yet I breathe into such unknown dare.
My heart wants to stop before I am there.
Does God forsake those in moments this bare?
No…these heartbeats are gifted with Eternity’s Prayer.
Come, find me breathing and held by love’s heart
born at the mercy of a dawning new start.
Dare all the bold to bow down before He.
Oh humble, such tumbles, let all glory rise free.
