I’ve spent so much time waiting.

For a call. For a note. For something, anything to tell me I am whole.

When will this long night end?

Time until the next
and the next
and the next
moves so slowly that I’m restless.

Stirring up the dark dust from my shattered heart, the light is clouded

Still I wait.

For the wind. For the water to wash me clean. For my eyes to open and see.

I pause, breathe in His grace

And I am still.

My pieces are in front of me.

Fragments of the past that fell apart, sanded new to fall into place, He restores me.

Lifted,  I know that All that I was waiting for is here.
