to reach my personal sanctum,
and there i take refuge in you
and shut out the world outside.
you calm the storm raging within
and drive away the fears haunting me,
and then the glowing embers ignite
and in that fire i behold your form!
this is a pilgrimage i would
make as often as i possibly could,
but i have to wait for the auspicious times
when your gates open for me to enter!
