By Joyce Rupp
Begin again, again, and again,
deliberately, with intention, each day
opening the heart’s door, seeking to invite
with the divine companion, eager to abide with us.
Let go of the binding chains to self-willed ways.
Begin again, and again, and again,
with ardent faith and endless vigil.
Never give up on praying.
Countless are the paths leading to the heart’s home
where Ancient Love anticipates us,
waiting, always waiting,
while our restless heart turns inward,
as we listen
for the whisper of remembrance,
the taste of an Eternal One here, yet, far,
the fragrance of the divine breath,
for a few delicious moments,
touching our soul
