so much … #pauseforAdvent

so much is waiting –
tantalising hope –
not just of gifts received
but also of gifts
ready to be given.

so much is waiting
the promise of closeness
or perhaps aloneness
(when we know
this should not be).

so much is waiting
prepare us, O Light,
prepare us for your presence
your present
our future hope.
