Poem: “Will the Guest Show?”

Will the Guest Show?

Like a dove on a church spire
Cooing a winsome song

Like the falcon on a cliff
Scanning for prey

Like the soldier pacing
Through the watches of the night

Like a mother waiting
For her son to come from war

There is One who waits and watches

Will the guest show?

The One who waits and watches

Would gladly use the fisher’s net
To  gather all your thoughts

Would gladly send a naval fleet
To bring you back to shore

Would gladly wait a thousand years
To hear your voice again

Would gladly wait alone in Church
To give Himself once more

Will the guest show?
