If the season is right
and the fruit of waiting is ripe.

If we both see ourselves completely surrender to God
If we finally loosen our grip
on our insecurities, anxieties and fears.

If both of us are fearless and doubtless of His love
can conquer the myriad feelings and emotions of our own blood.

If we already surpass all the temptations of our youth
visualize our vulnerability,
surrender our lust and live with purity.

If we already keep His promise
and kneel our knees to the cross
living with His commandments

If our souls finally unite as the universe unfolds
even if it's improbable in our own time and space

if He already says, "Go on my child"

And see you standing still at the edge of the aisle
Can I finally say?
I'm the missing part of your ribs.

Sacred space

In multitudes we find comfort in being connected, in abundance, we find fullness and joy, in success, we find meaning and purpose and in emptiness, we find failings and breakings. Surely, it’s painful but there is so much healing in stillness, a breakthrough in a quiet and lonely place when no one is watching, only you and God. In the wilderness, a barren and desolate place, we can find beauty and solace in being honest with ourselves and just pouring out our hearts to God.
