Cradling the Mystery

I keep trying to catch you before you fall

Seeking to save our future that’s all.

Every dream slips through my black lace,

At an excruciatingly highspeed sluggish pace.


My hands keep reaching to cradle your head

My body keeps searching for you in our bed,

My heart, my lungs, my mind are torn in half each day

As I try to live and breathe, think and pray.

This oneness that we were taught to be

This beautiful intimate mystery

Is torture to my mortal soul

How will the heavens ever make me whole?


You, in such sweet peaceful being

You, from all eternity seeing

The anguish of my broken heart

Please ease this suffering while we’re apart


Entreat our Savior His mercy great

To ease the pain of my fate

Daily send His compassion true

As all of me longs for all of you.

“For this reason

a man will leave his father and mother

and be united to his wife,

and the two will become one flesh.

So they are no longer two, but one flesh.

Therefore what God has joined together,

let no one separate.”

Matthew 10:7-9
