Rhythmic footsteps, soft silent snow,
Predawn hours, miles logged, who would know?
Weekly goals gained, long distance runs,
Lean limbs, strong arms, powerful lungs.
Pitch black dome, crisp air, gleaming moon,
Quiet world, my mind its own tune.
Grateful runner, each breath I take
Lets me sprint, plod, race, navigate.
Round bend, bolt, roam, leap log, haul hill,
Conquer burdens; legs do your will.
Savor time, relish pace not fast,
Sort past, grasp why, feel peace at last.
Rest inside the palm of His hand,
God embraces me, unbiddened, unplanned.
