Sonnet #33: Anticipating Easter

Come, climb with me, this ladder to the stars;
come dive with me, and swim in seas of joy.
Sweet music of the night, strum your guitars,
with songs of heaven let your voice employ,

for grace will come again to fill my heart.
This ache of emptiness will go away;
how I'll rejoice to see that pain depart
and love again pervade each waking day.

What thrill t'will be, to finally unite
with what seemed lost forever, years on end;
to feel at last the color and the light
warming my soul, empowering me again

to give, when for so long I've only taken:
come, Love, come Light, and let True Life awaken.
