Return Again

September 8, 2008

From the ashes,
I have risen,
watered by your living love.

From the burnt wasteland
of so many yesterdays,
I find the hope
in your constant bright light.

Return me to pure darkness,
burn me to the core;
fill me with your holy fire,
cleanse me in your terrible ire.

The wickedness of youth –
lead me back to there.

Fill my heart with misery,
flood me in despair.

Return to me, oh God.

Return me, too, to you –
extinguished in the waters of life,
rising once again.
