as I hope

the beauty outside is stunning
yet I remain at a distance
for a time I am separated
by walls, yes, but also windows

I can see what awaits me
a table is being prepared
the food of which I have tasted
memories now that I savour in faith

I dwell among those who wait
those who look with longing
I seek this world that calls me from afar
and learn to listen as I hope
