I spent today in solitude. I tried to not let it be inhibited by guilt for skipping church. That was only partially successful. But I read and fasted and thought and prayed and played the violin and read old journals. This is one of the pieces I found. (dated 12.08)

my heart is heavy-laden
with thoughts of you
and the only way i know
to ease the burden
is to pray
pray for you
so i give you up to God
and my spirit is freed
as i’m down on my knees
and my lips form a plea
so when i peel off the scab
of the scar on my heart and find
underneath it
i claim the balm of gilead
for the you-shaped wound on my heart
as i lift you up in prayer
