mercy

merciful one
your mercy pours down
it is thicker than my tears
deeper than the hurts, doubts, fears
bigger than the years
and all of what has been done
or not been done

for what you do
outstrips them all
o love giver,
strength granter
to the weak and the weary
even in heaviness
I see your beauty

it is lighter than a feather
yet more substantial
than the ocean’s weight
it is my longed-for
hoped-for, lived-for –
it is brighter than all
that dazzles my eyes
