In definition of the word “just”
I would offer dual meanings.
Minimally, by very small margin…
Or, merited, once earned.
It is hoped that both perspectives
And evaluated in ways that
My Master may find respectfully pleasing.
Many are the times
When a mere glance, or nod of His head
Is, to Him, “just” a private signal.
But to me, is every Just Reward that I’d hoped to attain.
Oh, how I strive to deserve “just” a little something!
Yet, I dare not voice more than I am due.
After all, His casual wave is still “just” a wave…to Him.
But, to me, is a Just and measured salute to devoted service.
There are times when I see Him
Daily, in peripheral vision, yet I cannot flinch, nor react.
He may acknowledge in “just” His everyday way,
Or, may not…but even being near Him is Justly Rewarding, to me.
Just Rewards were defined, and tested, in the beginning.
His disappointment being the worst of all fates.
My actions are always responsible.
“Just” His smallest regard, in greater scope, is every treasure, to me.
