It is time to draw near again
To come home to You, to what is deep within me, and to those who gather around me
To watch and to wait; to be open, to surrender, to accept
To seek out peace, quietness, meditation, and prayer.
For I will be encompassed, consumed
As joy and pain
The forming of new life and the breaking of the body,
The union of two into one and the rendering of one into two
Meet and touch within my body and soul.
As the sunflower moves towards the sunlight
So I turn my face to You
