Sweet Fulfillment

With every breath we go wandering

            in search of some ultimate treasure,

perhaps to be heard, or to feel safe,

            or else to experience pleasure;

though each of these is but an ember

            in a greater desire, a burning,

to quench some thirst, to fill some void,

            to satisfy the soul’s true yearning;

but there is no feeling or coin or place

            to replenish this gaping hole;

there is only the grace of God

            that fulfills the longing of our soul.
