Waiting. A poem for the 4th week of Advent.

Waiting

We wait in hope
But what about when hope seems lost?

We wait in wonder,
But what about when wonder is gone?

We wait patiently,
But we are so impatient.

We wait with love,
But it is quickly fading.

O Come, O come Emmanuel
Even when our hearts seem hard.

Come to change our hearts,

Cosmic Birth, by Mary Southard, CSJ

So that we may never fully lose
All hope, wonder,
Patience, and love.

Come and fill us with your mercy
And compassion so that we might
Never lose sight again.

Come. Be with us.
Stay with us.
O Emmanuel we
Need you most right now.
Come.

~Sister Clare
