“A tear is enough water to float a desire to God.”
Charles Spurgeon

Oh God
it is on oceans that I float my heart to you
my heart tragic and Titanic
and full of broken dreams

my tears feed every ocean that ships sail upon so free
and so, will my desires, prayers, and longings come to Thee?

but as the passenger disembarks
and clambers from the ship
so I distinguish me from my desires, they mere ships
to sail the oceans of the heart
to catch those winds so strong

and carry me home to You, God
for this I ever long.
