Rider

Im draggin this last one

Waiting for him to return from distant lands

Dirty cowboy boots

Kickin up summers dirt

Dried up mud

Where we once danced

Barefoot in the rain

Babies sleep quietly

As I sit on this porch so silently

Stars play my melody

Of moonlights symphony

My midnight company

Until he rides

Over where the sun rises

And nestles into the sky

From afar he is only a shadow

Now his bravery paces him closer

To my lips

Curved upwards unto the Son

With gratitude and love

Handprints molded into

The flesh of my hips

He has come home

As heaven reaches down for a kiss
