a promise.

My last breath will be given back
to the one who gives it to me.
Every day till then
I will wait, I will see you.

Every morning,
let the words that catch my breath
not fall to the ground empty,
but make me come alive,

and let the brightness
of the likeness of your nearness
speak on my behalf, show me, wake me:
I have nothing else.


  1. i have nothing else. i feel free when i remember that.

  2. I know, it's a beautiful thing to know dependence and therefore to be able to experience His kindness. It's a vulnerable place to be and the greatest gift.

    Thanks for commenting, I don't know how you came across this blog... I haven't written on this one for a long time... but it was encouraging to be reminded of this prayer. Blessings.
