In the darkness and the cold,
people are drawn to the light
and the warmth of a fire,
welcoming, cheering and strengthening.
Just so, am I
drawn to the presence of God,
content just to be there.
silent as I recognise the inadequacy of words,
savouring the divine presence
which enables me
to live out my faith in an often cheerless world.
