Unmovable and majestic 
I feel small yet safe in the shadow 
Of the mountain looming before me
As a protector from the wind and sun
I’m thankful and at peace

Now as I stand
Peering at the steepness
Finding my path leading upward
No longer seeming a protective presence
The rocky heights now a formidable challenge

To scale the heights of your love
Is not the same
As enjoying from a distance
To be close will take a toll
I must persevere to make the climb

While you smiled on me from afar
Now you work within to move me
Upward toward the promise of the vista
You whisper the future in my ear
I feel small and humble yet oddly powerful
