Of Immortal Longing



 

He who has clasped in aching want
The emptiness of mortal best
Has felt the Hand of God upon
The door that leads to Heaven’s rest

He who has come to understand
The fullness of futility
In the successes of a man
Has glimpsed his own mortality

He who has come to recognize
Immortal longing deep inside
Waits faithfully; beyond the skies
He knows he will be satisfied

© Janet Martin

I believe in the immortality of the soul
because I have within me
immortal longings.
