Advent

In the midst
of finding gifts
and planning food
of deciding where
we will be,
we long for you.
As we look back
to an age past
with angels
shepherds
and kings,
we long for you
We look around and see
poverty
war,
loss of hope
of faith,
and we long for you.
As we witness
a reaching out
the building up
of community
fitted in with busy lives
then we know that
you are here…
And as we see those glimpses of heaven
that hope of
golden love
eternal warmth
deeper justice,
promised at your first coming
and shown in lives of love now,

we long for you.
