The Shade

The Shade

She calls me goofy
Which I suppose is a slightly derogatory
Way of admitting I’m funny

But I am the shade
I’m beside you at your right hand,
The sun shall not harm you by day
Nor the moon by night

And we shall drink of the stream
I have commanded the ravens
To feed us there
Wherever we sleep

He said blessed are the poor in spirit
For theirs is the Kingdom of heaven
Blessed are they who mourn
For they will be comforted
Blessed are the meek
For they will inherit the land
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness
For they will be satisfied
Blessed are the merciful
For they will be shown mercy
Blessed are the clean of heart
For they will see God
Blessed are the peacemakers
For they will be called children of God
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness
For theirs is the Kingdom of heaven
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you
And utter every kind of evil against you falsely because of me
Rejoice and be glad
For your reward will be great in heaven
Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you
