psalm 22: the louder my cries

the louder my cries,
the farther away you feel.
help me to quiet
my soul,
that i may know
your nearness again.

don’t let me roar
into the emptiness like
a newborn emerging
from the womb;
nurse me with your grace,
soothe me with your presence,
with a love overflowing
without beginning
or end.

if i promise to end
these sad, bitter tears,
do you promise i will
find you standing there,
your open arms reminding me
that you’ve never
really been away?
