Understanding

Later, you say, later,
but how much later
until hope is restored
until mourning is comforted?

Later, you say, later,
but how much later
until love is confessed
until peace is presupposed?

Later, you say, later,
but in the meantime
you look away from me and
I do not understand how to keep faith.

on John 13:7
