Longing in Our Soul

We rush around
gathering possessions
thinking more
will fill the longing
in our souls.

We are but a temporary resident
like our ancestors
possessions, fame, power
soon swept away
by the tides of time.

We are like baby birds
mouth wide open
ready, needing what
we do not know.

Listen carefully, Dear Ones
only can our Creator
redeem our souls
give us peace.

Beg for His mercy
surrender to
His loving ways
know that longing
will be fulfilled
forever more.

    Yes indeed, we are! “We are like baby birds
mouth wide open
ready, needing what
we do not know.” I so totally relate to that!
