I do not need/ doctrinal purity/ to be spiritually pure.
I do not need/ moral absolutes/ to be morally sure.
I do not need/ visions of heaven/ to hope/ that there is one there.
I do not need/ a witness of faith/ before/ your cross I will bear.
I know that I yearn/ to listen/ to hear/ with a Love enlarging my soul.
And I know that I wish/ there is Something beyond me,
that binds us/ Connected/ and Whole.
I hope for your future,
I bleed for my past,
I delight in the present.
