The Waters that Lie Between Us

An inestimable gulf exists

Between what I am

And what You made me to be.


That is why I stare with longing

Across the waters

That lie between us.


Maybe that's the point?

Of this life lived so long

On the shore of desire,


To stand watch

For what is true and real

To seek and to find the Divine.

Oh, this journey of mine!

I hope and I love

I hear, I see, and I know


You are the One that

Keeps me, while here,

Only to walk upon the bridge


Built by Christ and

Sanctified by Your Spirit.

Life is but a journey


Filled with unquenchable desire,

So strike out into the deep!

Onward to the Eschaton!
