There Is A Grace Approaching

  by Stephen and Ondrea Levine

There is a grace approaching
That we shun as much as death
It is the completion of our birth.

It does not come in time
But in timelessness
When the mind sinks into the heart
And we remember who we are.

It is an insistent grace that draws us
To the edge and beckons us
To surrender safe territory
And enter our enormity.

We know we must pass
Beyond knowing
And fear the shedding.

But we are pulled upward
Nonetheless through forgotten ghosts
And unexpected angels
Realizing it doesn’t make sense
To make sense anymore.

This morning
The universe danced before you
As you sang –
It loves that song!
