Night’s upon us, Lord:

    time to show yet another web page 

        on this chapter of my life…

All of us have a narrative, Lord,

    all of us have a narrative to inform…


A part of my story is an open ebook

    – even informal observers can have a look…


However a lot of my story is understood solely to these

    who’ve had a share in my story

who’ve shared in a chapter or two

    from the archives in my coronary heart…


And naturally you, Lord,

     my complete story, chapter and verse;

you even know the tip of my story

    which continues to be a thriller, even to me…


I am grateful for all who’re a part of my story, Lord:

    those that’ve learn and shared the pages

        of my tender, troubled, treasured instances…

However most of all, Lord, I am grateful to you:

    you who know the entire of my story

        – and love me nonetheless

    you who know my character’s tragic flaws

        – but by no means fail to forgive me

    you who know my story’s deepest secrets and techniques

        – and hold them protected between us

    you who know the way actually odd my story is

        – and but savor each phrase…

    you who learn me like a ebook,

        – however by no means tire of my saga


And most great of all:

    you, the supply, the writer of each story,

you’ve got fastidiously written, threaded and woven  

    your gracious story into mine…


My story started in you, Lord,

    your fingerprints are on its each web page,

and my story will conclude in you,

    in an epilogue, I pray, 

        of peace that by no means ends…

All of us have a narrative to inform, Lord,

    and I pray my story and yours

turn out to be an increasing number of however one story,

      the story of your love eternal love…


Defend me, Lord, as I lie awake

    and watch over me as I sleep
