Waiting for midnight,
summer's backlit sky comes clear
as the stars begin their romance in the new moon's care.
Here, in the warm distraction of conscious thought,
to cast my eye to moments long past,
I'm an open book.
When I was a dying thief,
I saw a shade of me
pacing deserted highways,
flagging for a ride
in hopes of better company than the passing time.
Along came a weathered traveler whose words were fresh to me.
"You may be wondering how you got here.
So, listen now, to me,
for I was dying a dying thief and I saw a shade of me
reaching out to a faceless man.
I was crying out to God,
Come save me,
but I never heard myself.
Yet I know He heard me,
for here I am.
