Lent Plea

Sometimes I turn my eyes to see you

But my mind is elsewhere

Sometimes I turn my head to listen

But I’m only half there

Sometimes I turn my hands to help

But my heart is not engaged

Sometimes I turn my whole body

But my soul has left the page

Sometimes my spirit cries out

But my comfort is all I seek

Sometimes I use the right words

But platitudes are all I speak

Turn me, Lord, today I pray

Body, mind, heart and soul

Leaving not a speck behind

Till You have me full and whole
