Advent longings


We built a house of dreams
and tiled its roof
with prayers and wishes
dreams and longings
hopes of our hearts
for the world.
Those hopes and dreams
and prayers and longings
join the petitions
of God's people
echoing through
the long corridors of history.
Our House of Dreams
is being transformed
into a stable.
Our prayers are overlaid
with the prayers of God's people
through the ages.
It seems an impossible burden to carry.
It seems as though darkness reigns
in the world today
as it did then.

But then a star appears
shining faintly at first
becoming stronger
dispelling darkness in its path
bringing light into the world
rekindling hope
promising peace
proclaiming that this is the place
where Love will be born.
