You Are Weeping Now

Broken body resting
On my lap hidden
Image of the unseen
God in finite form frail

God knows how to live
And how not to be
Able to keep going
To birth’s beginnings
The end of expectancy

Eternal is the space
Beyond end and beginning
The place of this child’s
Belonging forever loved
By God ever before
World and Womb were made

Eamonn Monson SAC

“So it is with you: you are sad now, but I shall see you again, and your hearts will be full of joy, and that joy no one shall take from you.” (John 16)
