The job I can do best
is to befriend you.
But in this world of love for big and lofty things,
sometimes I feel unhappy
because I feel alone,
because I do a lot of tiny things.
Tonight we eat together,
as this morning we ate together,
as yesterday, as the day before yesterday…
I eat and confide in you.
Reading the Bible and confiding in you.
Doing things in our kitchen and confiding in you.
Walking and confiding in you.
Playing music and confiding in you.
Lying on my bed and confiding in you…
Confiding in you, I’m peaceful.
Although I’m still unhappy, I’m peaceful.
And you don’t let me be unhappy for a long time.
You always make me happy.
I love you, Jesus.
