How Long

Written last night, 2-21-06. The first two lines are loosely based on some verses in Psalm 84, but I didn't know that for sure until today.

How Long
by: R.A. Slater

My soul longs, and even waits
For You my Lord, my heart aches
I long for Your voice to re-enter my consciousness
As I strain to hear the songs You've promised to sing
I regret the day when I gave up and turned away
But even then You're hand held fast to keep me from falling too hard
And now when I look for You---I cannot see You
Where have You gone, when You've been with me all along?
Please won't You help me, give me some hint
I want to floow after You, but cannot even find a trail of breadcrumbs
Siren songs to the left and right blaring and screaming
Sometimes all through the night
Your voice is either drowned out or is silent
I know not which
I only want to know.....
......How long until I find you once again?????????
