Only in the depths

That light in the distance --
so alluring --
draws me homeward
to You.
Help me to step forward
onto the path that will most surely
carry me to You;
the path that will transport me
away from busy restlessness
and down into the mists
of stillness and mystery.
I'd thought that staying here
above the clouds
would keep me bathed in light.
But now I see this reality is darkness,
and true light awaits me
only in the depths.

This has a lovely meditative quality, like a prayer.
