In Your Presence

In your presence I am lifted

To heights unattainable by mortals.

I soar above worlds unseen

And yet both feet are on the ground.

In your presence I am a ship at sea

And you are the wind that fills my sail

I travel miles a minute

Yet both feet are still in port

In your presence I am a child

Protected from all harm

While allowed to run free

Yet both feet are on the floor in front of you.

In your presence I am

In your presence I always will be

In your presence I shall keep

My feet in step with yours.

Beautifully composed. I love the way this begins, and especially the way you ended this. Keep you feet on the ground, but sail the skies in your soul. :)
