dear god

while walking to my car 

i crossed a man 

who was stopped 

on the sidewalk 

he had his bags on the ground 

and he stood for a rest 

his smile was wider than a mile 

‘jesus loves you’ 

was embroidered on his ball cap 

seeing my guitar in hand 

he said 

‘do you play?’ 

‘yes’ i said 



‘do you sing as well?’ 


‘i am so proud of you!’ 

‘that makes one of us’ 

as i passed him 

he picked up his bags 

and sauntered on 

and i went to the airport 

and played harvest moon 

five times 

cuz i’m still in love with you 

just like jesus is 

god bless
