Enough Water

“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 boat
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.
