You Are There - Poem

"You Are There"
Ryken Kreps

In the darkness
In the shadow
In the weakness
In the doubt

In the toil
In the hardship
In the work
In the drought

In the suffering
In the pain
In the anger
In the shame

In the joy
In the sorrow
In the good times
In the bad

In the rejoicing
In the mourning
In the waiting
In the dread

In the dirt
In the sky
In the heavens
In the deep

In the unrelenting tide of history
In the unforgiving path of life
In the complex confusion of community
In the simple serenity of solitude

In the greenest green of nature
In the grayest gray of city
In the bluest blue of ocean
In the blackest black of night

God, you are there.
You are there.
