When I hold
my rosary
gently in my hands,
and weave my fingers
through the beads,

their perfume kiss,
on my fingertips
the scent of rose hips
fills my nose
and I know
you are with me.

But I want to feel you with me.
I want to feel your touch.
I want to feel your lips pressed to my face.
I want to feel myself tremble
under the weight of your thumb
merely grazing me with your grace.

Oh how my heart
has become a stone
cold, hard, and alone,
though you have shown
yourself to me before.

Oh how I pray,
that you'll come back again
that I might see your hands
that I might feel your
love wash over me.

I want to feel you with me.
I want to feel your warmth.
I want to feel myself cradled in your embrace.
I want to be immersed
in your abounding love.
I want to sing the glory of your name.

I want to feel you with me,
feel the breath of your ghost, and hear
your words like rainfall in the trees.
I want to cry the gospel,
and to kneel at your feet.
I need your love to rain down over me.

Rain down, rain down,
rain down your love over me.
Rain down, rain down,
heal my heart and set my soul free.
