some days I wonder,
how much longer
because this earth is broken
and these hearts are broken
and try as I might,
I can’t stitch hearts back together
and I sure can’t glue this world back together
I’ve never been great when it comes to needle and thread
and pardon me while I glue my fingers together
because sometimes it feels like I’m just making a bigger mess of things.
so how much longer, Abba?
how much longer till no more pain and no more tears
and creation has been groaning for so long
and I’m ready, Your kingdom come
on earth as it is in heaven
how much longer?
but I don’t think You count in minutes and seconds like I do,
because all I get is a whisper on the wind that says,
a little longer.
