Do I refuse?

Do I refuse your tender embrace when I through my day do blindly race?

Your voice is calling for me to hear, but instead I decide to turn my ear.

Your protection you offer to keep me from harm, but like a small child I pull away my arm.

As does the child who wants to go her own way. You watch so sadly as I stray.

Your heart still calls as I fall down. My face now upturned filled with a frown.

My tears fall and my heart breaks.  I ran from you and Your heart aches.

I am back Daddy please hold me tight. I will try today to bask in Your light.
