Falling, In Love

Falling quickly to the ground,
Alone, with no one near.
Is it a leaf, I have found?
No, though many are here.

Maybe falling rays of light:
A sunset in the sky.
As the evening turns to night,
I see that too, and sigh

Yet still there is another fall:
Not leaves, nor a sunset.
Is it my own soul's helpless call?
I could speak ... no, not yet.

The three falls discussed above
As real as they may be.
Are not like your falls of love,
Climbing to Calvary.

I know not what is to come
I barely know what's been
Eyes remain on what's ahead
For, what's behind me?  Sin.

But I know the Lord has said
His treasure's up above
I will not find it, looking back.
From heaven comes his love.

There are many things I lack
Which I'd take, if I could.
But these are not what I'll need
To make this journey good

When I'm hungry, He will feed
With food that's surely blessed
I'll let go of where I'm from.
Then, only, he'll grant rest.
