Mercy Reach

Searching from the depths of my heart
I reach inward and outward
and find no resting place.

The ground is shaky,
the air is grey,
the grass is blackened.

Then your peace comes.
I’m wrapped up in Love
like a warm velvet blanket
on a frozen winter day.
You cradle my pain
keeping it safe until … then.
Pain pauses, I breathe.

Shadowy glimpses of your beauty
drift into sight as I sigh against your neck.
I am
safe,
held,
felt.
Sorrow tries to break me yet again
but your Love shines brighter.
Like the light of seven days
I lean into your brightness
and my darkness cannot stay.

I lean into your brightness
and my darkness cannot stay …
