by Jeanelle Fu

On nights like these
when there are no campfires around, and no soul in sight
I’ll clutch your promise close to my chest, and press onward

When tears fall unseen, and wounds bloom in silence
I’ll kneel at the foot of the Cross
and remember the crown of thorns you wore for me

These are the days Hosea felt his heart break
in a million ways
These are the days she will come up out of the wilderness,
whole again.
