The City of God Awaits

This day of silence
of waiting
of separation from our Beloved,
is it not our life?
As we flock to the streets where He walked
and weep that He walks there no longer,
do we not share one heart?
Longing for the Beloved
whose shadow has passed by
and disappeared like smoke,
choking us with grief…
Longing for
Immanuel,
Paradise–
a love that never fails
a light that never ceases
a warmth which will never turn a cold shoulder
and leave us truly abandoned.
Our tears are equally precious pearls
no matter the tongue
which utters our sobs,
no matter the place we pray
and beg for the kingdom of peace
to be now.
