you know i worry



you know i worry about you.
in the back of our minds, we both know i worry about you.
so much water has passed underneath our bridge
(i know now Who built it.)

but i still worry.
we laughed until the moon set, but she told me it wasn't me.
told me i couldn't make things grow
no matter how i wanted them to.
(i always overwater.)

but i still worry.
i stand beneath the fluorescent lights.
and come humbly before the throne of grace.
because i am a little girl who is scared of failure
when she holds so much.

you tell me that you know i worry.
and that...
the words stick in your throat and i grin at the floor.
but i know.

this is still Christ's day,
just as much as the day when it all falls apart. 
and you know i worry about you.
but i know what it meant and cost
for you to know.

and that price fills my heart
always.

xx


hoohaahaa.
