Prayer

2016-02-12 19.23.22-3

my prayer was
like
drawing water from
an empty well
I found nothing in it
but tears and
despair

you stood by my side
took my hand
“leave the bucket behind”,
you said,
and you led me
to your empty grave

I looked into
your eyes
not knowing what to do
“this stone is rolled over
for you,
tell me, what you
want me to do”

‘make me free
take what I can no longer
carry with me
show me that in my soul
you can turn death
into life
all the sickness that I
carry inside
heal,
like your wounds
were healed
after your terrible
dark night,
bring me fully
into life’
