Awaiting Peace

I wait
For peace on Earth,
Yet, I must know it first
Within my soul.

Come to me,
Passing through locked doors,
For Christmas, Christ’s birth,
Anticipates Easter grace,
Your holy Incarnation,
Is key to remedy.

Make passage
Into my soul.
Open my heart,
Speak my name.

For gathered with your Church
In faith, hope and fasting,
With Wisemen, following and seeking,
I wait.
