It slips through my fingers, falling like sand. My life. I can't catch it.
"Stop!" I shout, "Please!" Desperation chokes me.
Fearful yearning takes my breath. Icy and unbreakable, the clenched fist of darkness, enclosing me like the shame of life passed by, life eternally lost: life of vanity, echoing of futility. Of empty purpose. Of fault. Of strain. I am dying inside- I am crying. I am tired. The water roles over me- a tide of fear, anxiety, pain, uselessness. I gasp for air but another wave knocks me down. Again and Again. Again. Again. Why won't it stop? I am drowning in my own tears, in blood that seeps from the wounds of my heartache. They form an ocean. Cold abuse wraps around me. Then a light. Flash. Flash. I remove my hands that had for so long covered my face, for fear of pain. For fear of what I would see. Tears subside as the light dances around me. It was the light that I had ignored for so long. Now I could see how strong it was. It waltzes to the rhythm of hope. To the sacred symphony of sweet eternity. It binds me. In the ecstasy. In the oblivion. I see Him. Dad.
"I've missed you, my child." He smiles, arms open wide, " I have seen your pain and your mundane plans. I have seen your tears. Allow me to wipe them away. I will never," He declares as I fall into His embrace, his arms tightening- fastening around me, "Never, ever let you go. I love you
At this moment, as creation whirls around me and I know only me in my Father's arms, my heart that was so ice-glazed and so aching. It melts. It is warmed. It is whole.
