Thoughts for Advent: Day Twenty

A Poem for Day Twenty

As children
our elation
was epic

Barely able to contain
the hyper happy
we danced for days

And it was all
about us
you know

Most definitely all
about us

We matured somewhat
Pondered deeper things
and learned to long

Beginning to sense
our brokenness
we turned toward you

And it was still
all about us

Not surprising, really
All about us

Now Advent teaches us
to yearn for you

And, honestly,
it's right we do

But quietly
it occurs to me

That every day
you long
for me
