My One Wish

This is my one wish:
that I would make it to the end
To be overwhelmed with joy
instead of overcome by sin

This is my one regret:
that it took so long to find You
All the time I searched for meaning
in the years before we met

This is my one desire:
that my heart would brim with love
My spirit filled with mercy,
and incandescent fire

– Written in December 2020
as I wondered if I would (or even could) stand firm
until the very end
