What He Asked

Will you walk to me on a road made of air?
You cannot see me, will you know I am there?
Can you do what you have to and go where you must
On a tightrope, blindfolded, led only by trust?

Will you trust me though everyone says I betray
And that you'll be alone at the end of the day?
What you do in my name is still on your hands;
Will you follow me if you don't know my ends?

When you face the abyss for the first time and see
How precious the life is you promised to me,
Will you reel back, the price now too high?
Or willingly fall, should I need you to die?

The pain that you suffer - chance, or my will?
You know you can't know; will you walk with me still?
Your losses - your own fault, a challenge, a test,
A part of your path, or distractions at best?

As you walk into darkness, your dreams turned to dust,
Without reason to, will you give me your trust?
When, calling to me, you hear only your voice,
Will you continue to stand by your choice?

For you choose not just once but on every day,
And the prize that I give is the price that you pay:
All-giving, all-taking, with every breath
You will die in your life and will live in your death.
