Soon Enough

Wes Tillett

11:09 and it’s a lonely Wednesday eve
Every wall is awaiting you
Lonely I wait, lonely I talk to you
On this sterile phone in this pale living room

But soon enough you’ll be here with your verdant eyes
To fill the void, fill the void that grows in me these nights
And soon enough we’ll be here not as two but one
To imitate, imitate the One who gives us life

Aprilled Virginia in her many-splendored gown
Dogwoods and lilacs swirling scent and sight
Beautiful month, beautiful life springing up from the ground
Yet shared with you this beauty would multiply

But soon enough you’ll be here with unfailing smile
To amplify, amplify the beauty of my life
And soon enough we’ll be here robed in gratitude
To glorify, glorify the One who gives us life

And soon enough you’ll be here with your verdant eyes
To satisfy, satisfy this blazing lack of you
And soon enough we’ll be here not as two but one
To imitate, imitate the One who makes one of two
