Standing at the core of my life,
Watching my past, my present converge in unity.
Steeped in exquisite reverie
Memories cascade from the depths of my being.
The air tinged with joy, remembrance, love
underlaid with raw thirst, naked hunger,
Change – new, faraway
Furnished in bareness.
I face an opening
Walking in quiet conviction
He enters, His eyes vigilant
Whirlwinds of emotion swirl about
A finished eternity – Wait.
Featherlight kiss of palm to face.
One tear falls, gently, hesitantly
Caressing temple to lips
Chills of calm envelop me
I surrender to His warm embrace
smiling consent –
Admittance to my soul.
My heart has found its purpose
– Finally Believing.
