Advent

wait

It’s a hand on a door
an opening
that will forever change everything
On the other side
a reuniting, long lost
dry mouth
heart pounds
swallow hard
and turn

It’s a mother’s last push
an arrival
that will forever change everything
Into this world
a new life, innocence
bear down
sweat beads
crowning scream
and push

It’s a farewell at bedside
an ending
that will forever change everything
a beginning
that will never be the same
cold hands
salty tears
the sign of the cross
and hope

It’s a meal shared between friends
a feast
that can forever change everything
body and blood given for all
passed around
broken bread
poured wine
become what we receive
and go

It’s a new day, new time
one where everything has changed forevermore
Long awaited and foretold
Kingdom come, here and now
last first
first last
justice done
and peace
