"On Second Thought"

On Second Thought

Lonely is the wind
flowing through the windows of my soul.
Does it seek
another lonely one to share its lonely life?

Or, does it
poke and thrust to coax me out for fun?
"Go away!", I say
and wrap myself tighter in my arms.

"My soul is wounded, bleeding, it can take no more."
Oh, but it can, I know,
because He is always there within
He will heal and love and help me grow.

So, lonely wind,
perhaps you are a friend.
And, if I loosen my grip on me,
if I slip out of my window
and join you on this day,
could it be that you and He
will lift my soul in play?
