i think i found the faith
you lost along the way
the one you said
you didn't believe in anymore
it was so fragile,
corroded with rust
still i knew when i saw it
that it was yours
it made me sad
to see it laying there
like so much trash
i had to retrieve it,
but it turned to ash
in my hands
i scattered it to the wind
the way i did your remains that day
but the wind has a mind of her own
i stand now
as i did then
covered in your dust

thank you doreen...this one i wrote. it was inspired by a song by brie stoner ("cheap") that was used as a soundtrack in a video by rob bell called "dust" that i saw this week. there was a line bell repeated at the end of the video, "may you be covered in the dust of your rabbi." i wanted to write about the influence and impact my father had/has on my life. it shows up in so many unexpected ways.
