Will You Ever Be Enough..

Will You Ever Be Enough..

long gone
my father
comes to me
in dreams
whispering reminders
of my compromises
and my failings

shall I be pleased
that he still cares
enough
to nudge me
beyond my fears
or will I allow
the waves of my inadequacies
churned into a froth
by his memory
wash over me
leaving me half-drowned
and gasping
clinging tenaciously
to my small accomplishments
against the receding years
pulling at my life

will I ever be enough
in his brown dominant eyes
or in my own
recessive blues
almost 60 years later
haunted still by
the measure of
whom he believed
I should be
and my own yearning
to be worthy

You Were…

You Were…

Wherever I traveled. You were manifested; Wherever I looked. You were revealed. In ka’ba, idol-temple, synagogue, and church, I saw All were searching for You, and to all You were a Friend. I sought only You in every person I met, every place I went; You were in every sign, both the outer and the…
