THIEF IN THE NIGHT
By Deborah Hinds
Submitted by the author 25 Sep 1998

I am taking your understanding away
Only for awhile
I shall blind your eyes in love
For nothing is as it seems

I shall steal your heart
For you suffer in vain
I shall feed your belly
With bread from heaven

Your hands of prayer
Shall perform my work
I shall walk with you a thousand miles
Only to lead you here

For you are mine
From head to toe
