your presence fills the space of silence,
and is carried on the wings of words.
Breathe into the spaces of my soul,
that where I falter you may be my bracing strength.
Call into the farthest reaches of my being
to beckon forth my weary yearnings.
Hold with tenderness the hurts and holes
that slow my response to your love.
Draw me to the infinite joy that is you.
