You Turned My Mourning Into Dancing

In the depths of sorrow
I reached out for I knew not what
Your Light was hidden I knew not where

In the darkness of my bereft body
I danced with grief.
In the pit of my sad stomach
I knew only longing
My heart was crying for solace
Hands  reaching to touch love.
Aching neck, hard to swallow
Breath caught in the lungs.
My sinew wept in loss.

Now, You dance my legs
And lift me from the ground
The weight of fear rolls off my shoulders
Arms reaching into space.

Beyond pain, beyond this self.
Turning, turning, turning
Spiraling upward on the wings of music.

It is here that you meet me
And dance my body
No-no more me
Nor longing, nor sorrow
Only the Holy dance
The sacred moment of merging into You
Into the One.

Who would have known
That the road to Mystery lay inside my body
Revealed in the Dance
You awaken my soul
In the core of my being,
I fly
With my feet on Holy ground.
