Mysterious unfathomable Universe

Mysterious unfathomable Universe:
Inspirer of awe and wonder,
and soaring of the spirit –
There are times when the greatness of the Universe
seems cold and distant,
as a black night sky –
Times when my heart cries out
not for awe
but for embrace and consolation.
On days like this
I call out to you as –
Wrap me in that great embrace
of care and compassion,
that I have known from my own dear ones.
Today, I need to call out…
tender Mother – nurturing and protective
watchful Father – silent strength of love
Care for my tattered soul,
wrap me in your embrace
cradle me in that Love
that passes all understanding.
Until the day I can again
move out in strength and power,
to lift my eyes in awe,
in wonder at the Greater Power and splendour.
