Even so

I’ve ripped my own heart out

a thousand times

in fits of impatience and anxiety

I’ve cursed at the night

with bitterness dripping from my tongue

I’ve crawled under the covers

trembling with fear of the future

even so

you have stitched my heart back together

piece by piece

even so

you have poured your love out on me

through the dark and reckless nights

even so

you have tucked me in

and clothed me in strength

even so

you have been Lord

and you always will be
