I CAN go slow

.

Deep inside where the engine chokes
The day is heavy and the work is slow.
Headache tablets not shifting a thing
Staring at screen making eyeballs sting.

Go slow, dear child, the day will wait
Go slow, dear one, I can only state
Go slow, my son, you are not late
Go slow, my one, one slow step just great.

Be still and know the verses do say
But I want to rush because I do each day
Be still means backlogs each and every way
So I need to move fast I cannot just stay.

Go slow, dear child, the day will wait
Go slow, dear one, I can only state
Go slow, my son, you are not late
Go slow, my one, another step just great.

Dear father, remind me of your God O’Clock
When second, minute and hour hands all stop –
That day I remember well – so wanting to drop
Yet you took me and held me and …

I will go slow, dear Lord, the day will wait
I will go slow, dear God, I can only reiterate
I will go slow, my Father, I can only state
I can go slow, my One, one step (at a time) …
