Close the Gap!

How easily we drift
or take offence at those
we used to care for, growing rift
– it’s hard the gap to close.

Some may be many miles
apart or overseas,
but that’s not what has stilled the smiles
and hindered former ease.

Who was it then to blame?
Don’t really need to know.
Longings remain to see again
how they are faring now.

If there’s a God, what rift
there is between us two,
and only He has got the gift
to draw me near, make new.

The faults are on my side,
– in Christ he can forgive
then help me to be reconciled
with people that I grieve.
