I asked

I asked for Peace –
My sins arose,
And bound me close,
I could not find release.

I asked for Truth –
My doubts came in,
And with their din
They wearied all my youth.

I asked for Love –
My lovers failed,
and grief assailed
Around, beneath, above.

I asked for Thee –
And thou didst come
To take me home
Within thy heart to be.
