Hello, Stranger

By John I. Blair

Hello, stranger!
Please come into my life!
Sing songs to me
I might not want to hear.
Praise me in ways
I cannot bear.
Push me onto paths
I would not think to follow.
I'll thank you some day.
I have sojourned
Too many years
On familiar shores.
Set me adrift,
Make me doubt again,
So I won't be lost in surety.

2003 John I. Blair
