Shared Space

img_7398The background of this town may not look like a work of art
The aging buildings, the worn out roads
But I’ve learned these sights and sounds by heart
And still feel there is more to be known

No majestic mountains or sparkling sea
Nothing of grandeur to draw people near
But something still captivates me
I know there is treasure here

Maybe it’s not so much about the place
But being face to face in shared space
Sharing stories and sharing hearts
The beautiful and broken parts

To know and be known
Walking shoulder to shoulder
And to see how we’ve grown
As we become older

What better worship than to wrestle for wisdom together
With love and longevity, what greater pleasure?
But this sense of belonging is just a taste
When the perfect comes, the partial will pass away
