Friend of Man

Peter Menkin - May 21, 2005

For a long time
day by day,
a month,
I set out to be
friend of God.

There is darkness now,
at this hour.
The night tells me,
who chooses. Even if
I await
the morning and call
daystar, Oh, Lord,
this is a day you made,
I realize now
my temerity and ignorance.

You choose, and You are
the friend
to me, man.
Humility recognized. God is all.

The poet reads in audio the poem, here:
