by Jeanelle Fu

Let my sorrow
Be the ground in which
Seeds of hope can bloom
To testify
That this earth is fading
And heaven is a breath closer

Tell my soul
To wait
and behold
That which gleams with the strength
Of a thousand suns
The promise in Your word

Let my darkness
Be the place
Where grace tells His story
2,000 years later
Still showing up
At somebody’s grave
