The Other Side

 

years ago I was you

I stood where you now stand

I sang the songs you now sing

in my own life there was an other

who knew God

who shared Him with we learning

 

but now I am with you

I stand where you now stare

and sing the songs you now sing

I stand before you as your other

who knows more

and shares this with you learning

 

the other side is not so easy

as once I may have thought

more responsibility

less casual

aware at last of the nature of the life

your lives are worth more

than an instants fleeing thought

 


 

Written after assisting Tim Rigby

with the youth at Ivanhoe and seeing

the changes God worked in their lives.
