This One I Give To You

 

This one I give to you.  It’s different from the heap.

          This one I give to you.  The others I will keep.

 

I bless my situation, though I haven’t got a clue

          How to solve this problem, what to or not to do.

 

I pray for resolution.  Please lift this weight from me.

          I know you have a plan that I hope one day to see.

 

It shows up in my dreams.  It’s with me every day -

          A deep unyielding sadness, that longs to go away.

 

I’m not sure where to turn, so straight to you I go

          To ask if you will take this.  I’m sure you won’t say no.

 

I know your arms are full with requests beyond compare.

          I know you’ll find the room and will handle all with care.

 

This one I give to you.  It’s different from the heap.

          This one I give to you.  The others I will keep.
