There is a Great Emptiness
There Is A Great Emptiness by Grace
There is a great emptiness ...
But you will have touched, at last,
the root of all suffering-
And only then can we understand
what it is that we must heal.
In this world the experience of separation
Is so tangible-
it is this that makes babies cry.
Our innocent flesh does not understand separation -
it is not true, it cannot be,
yet our senses tell us it is ...
Thus we will seek a thousand ways
To deaden those senses,
To not feel that unbearable agony.
God help us to be brave -
To stand naked before you,
To meet you on the threshold
of our deepest feelings.
Give us courage to face the darkness
of our emptiness
through which is glimpsed
of your ineffable shining face.
