Turning toward God


My whole life I’ve been turning –
turning toward God.
However you have perceived this one life,
this one soul:
I have been turning, turning toward God.
I have turned through the ages,
I have turned for the ancestors,
I have turned out of sorrow and loneliness,
I have turned when I have been afraid to turn,
afraid I might fall, but still –
turning, turning.

I’ve been turning, turning toward God,
that silent  One,  the One I love I have not seen,
the One who holds the turning,
that turning toward God.
