Becoming

Reach out Your hand –
You my only Light in the darkness –
grant me courage with Your eyes
and dance with me on the waters.

Draw me after You –
You my one and only True Love –
shared with me my death,
share with me Your life.

Fetch me –
You came for me once and took my mantle of flesh –
come again a thousand times, every time new,
create my feathers of light.

Show me the way –
Your child, step by step,
in the tow of your strength,
lead me, teach me to fly.

Make me like You –
Your bride united with You wing beside wing,
through fire through water held captive by nought but Your beauty
until promise becomes reality.
