Sigh

I heard Your mysterious Word,
   and sighed for a long-missed Friend.
But I am sure my prayers were heard;
   coming through the grief to the end.

Coming out of this long dark tunnel,
   the eyes of my heart ache from the light.
You're pouring me through Your spiritual funnel;
   will You sift me with Your might?

I hear myself speaking Your Word,
   as if recalling a old dear Friend.
It's You I want to be heard;
   take my ego. Make it end.

Longing for the words to make me like You;
   is this desire from Your love?
Make words come, but make them true;
   only the words of the borne-above.

Born of a night of gut-wrenching grief,
   but with impending resolution.
Leave my sins cast on a reef;
   Grace and Mercy is my Solution.

I may always begin with despair,
   then You come with Your rope.
As if I had spoken Your good prayer
   soon I must return to Hope.
