The Shepherd

PAD Challenge, Prompt #18: lost and found

He goes out gently,
closing the gate to
keep safe the ones
already in the fold.

He goes out, leaving
comfort and safety,
disregarding the coming
pain and suffering.

He goes out seeking
for one who wandered
away, now lost and alone,
now utterly defenseless.

He goes out gently,
seeking intently, until
the lost one is found
and safe in His arms.
