To know God,
to truly know God.
That’s what I want more
He’ll come to me as a friend
and sit by my side.
He’ll sing to me of love, joy,
and inner tranquility.
He’ll tell me what a godd person
I’ve been all my life
and how pleased He is with
the paths that I have chosen.
When tears run down my cheeks
He’ll wrap His arms around me
and hold me tight, not letting go
until the shuddering subsides.
We’ll share cool water,
homemade bread and a bowl
of fresh fruit picked off trees
in my backyard.
Before we begin we’ll bow heads
and offer thanks for
all the good and kind people in the world,
for peace, for love and for self-acceptance.
When He bites into the apple
and juice runs down His chin,
I’ll snap a photo and we’ll laugh.
He’ll take a picture of me smiling
so that I may treasure it forever.
After our meal I’ll invite Him to spend
the night. We’ll have a slumber party
with popcorn and a G-rated movie.
He’ll sleep in my bedroom.
I’ll be on the couch and when I close my eyes
I’ll sleep more soundly than I’ve ever
slept in my life.
In the morning He’ll wake me
with the warmth of His smile.
I’ll tingle all over and even after
hours have past, I’ll recall the happiness
that spread throughout my body.
Before He leaves He’ll pull
me aside and whisper
like a gentle breeze, but I’ll hear Him
say He’ll be my best friend forever.
