Craving Eternity

Updated: Jan 25

I stare high up at the sky and

I see you.

I peer deep into the ocean and

I see you.


And yet, I do not see you.


I heed the echo of the mountains and

I hear you.

I hearken to the stillness of the desert and

I hear you.


And yet, I do not hear you.


When the wind blows across my face,

I feel you.

When the waves wash over me,

I feel you.


And yet, I do not feel you.


Taste and smell are

Like that, too.

Known and yet unknown...

Again and again and again.


Still...


I know You are near me.

I know You are in me.

I know You are with me.

I know and I know and I know.


And yet, I want more.

I crave the smallest possible space

Between You and me.

I desire it with bated breath.


So, I ask.

I pray.

One thing.

One thing alone.


Whatever I cannot see now,

Whatever I cannot hear now,

Whatever I cannot touch now,

Whatever I cannot taste and smell now...


I will give it up -

All of it.

To be with you

In eternity...


Catching glimpses of the

Illuminated Darkness.

Hearing snippets of the

Uncreated Silence.


Everything for eternity

Oh...what an eternity!
