Don’t I Know You – A Poem By Aaron Blakeley

I Know You - A poem by Aaron Blakeley

Where have I seen you before?
Peeking in the window during my worst mistakes
Jotting down my words and placing then in the seat of regret
There you were watching with wet eyes
You hated your job but laughed often
You begged and pleaded with me

Why when the waves wash over the shores
Why when the squall knocks down the tent
Why do I forget you immediately
How lovely you are daughter of the word
Your existence anchored in creation
A thread of thought attached to God

There are times where we are locked in step
You with your eternal perspective
Me with my existence & physical body
You a sheaf of papers and a listening ear
Me obedient and in love with the father
Your name is wisdom, mine is child

The wisest thing I have ever done
Was to get up when I fell turning my eyes to the Lord
