Instilled Life

An animal is all I am, unless
You pour Your life of Spirit into me.
O, Christ, although my mind is now a mess,
please pour it in so I’ll forever be
alive in You from whom my life has come,
the life that’s not just carnal, but is more
than what is seen or heard – the heartbeat’s drum –
eternal life of Spirit that You pour.
Although it seems I let life in me dry
since when You poured that life in me before,
please heed, O Christ, today my plaintive cry
as You are everything worth living for.
Please fill me with your life now through and through
till there is nothing left of me but You.
