That Desperate Wanting
sjbar.gif (5535 bytes)

that desperate wanting

fear of being alone,

destitute longing

to belong.


that aching heart crying

for love, peace and rest,

seeking, looking,

lonely quest.


many doors, empty rooms,

on solitary paths,

stumbling, blinded

pointless death.


a friend, a brother, closer

than air breathed:

Jesus walks beside,

bringing peace.
