I get this wide yearning ache inside my heart.
It fills up every space which leaves me empty.
Piercing deeply, its pang arches over the beat of my blood.
When I am not looking
it descends sharply, closes in, and catches my pulse,
holding it captive.
Oh Spirit of Breath and Heart and Life,
blow into my own.
Release, restore my living…
and remind me of Your presence ever hovering around.
