But You’d Understand

imagesWN3KR7PNI’m thinking of you, today, St Joseph,

This second day of your novena;

To retreat from the world

And rest awhile in your lap, I’d like.

Away from questioning gazes and puzzled frowns

To cry, if but a little.

No real reason, no tragedy or true sorrow

Just a silly cry over a silly sadness

But you’d understand.

 

imagesALAGWKOCI’m thinking of you, today, St Joseph,

This second day of your novena;

To open my heart

And lay bare

The hope in shame, hidden

Wrapped in ribbons of foolishness;

A fool in the eyes of the world, I am,

But you’d understand.

 

imagesKA7L2U8NI’m thinking of you, today, St Joseph,

This second day of your novena;

Silently to me you came

In old light of remembered prayer;

That a place to rest there is

For silly tears and worn dreams

Wrinkle against logic, they do

But you’d understand.
