Wednesday Riff: To Know You

More than just words on a page,
Or prayers in a service.
More than notions of belief,
Or rules and theology.
More than a hopeful solution,
Or a different world-view.
Beyond all this,
Richer than all this,
To know you.
To sense your presence,
To realise how much you value,
And understand,
Us,
As we do our best,
To value and understand.
You.
To know you.
In the rush and the panic,
The worrying and the fretting,
In the peace and the calm,
In the happiness and wonder.
To know you.
The quest goes on,
Catching glimpses here and there,
Our spirits quickened,
From time to time.
To know you.
That’s our longing.
