Love Knocks and Waits for Us to Hear

Love knocks and waits for us to hear,
     to open and invite:
Love longs to quiet every fear,
     and seeks to set things right.

Love offers life, in spite of foes 
     who threaten and condemn;
embracing enemies, Love goes
     the second mile with them.

Love comes to heal the broken heart,
     to ease the troubled mind;
without a word Love bids us start
     to ask and seek and find.

Love knocks and enters at the sound
     of welcome from within;
Love sings and dances all around,
     and feels new life begin.
