Sacred Darkness
When the desire to go forward lessens,
When the brightness of insight dims,
When the hope of finding a way fails,
It is then that I enter into your darkness and find a nest in your sheltering womb.
Entering the hushed cave of your heart I abide in the shadow of your presence,
Turning toward that which is not seen
But known in faith, accepted with hope.
Resting there, I am enveloped in your love.
