2015.03.28: leaving the mountain

here i sit with you, Lord
where emptiness once ruled
my heart is now filled
with peace, love, and joy
would that i could
stay in this moment
with you forever
yet time passes on
but the cross doesn’t
it awaits
looming

so we must leave
this mountain behind
along with its stillness
and clarity of vision
we must enter the city
to meet the maelstrom
of noise and confusion

Abba, grant me
the courage
to remain with him
as he has been with me,
the fortitude
to abide in the suffering,
and the hope
to wait through darkness
into everlasting light.
