In the Wonder of the Star

A star led the wise men to find a babe in a manger.  The wise still seek Him.

Steelwood Forest -Away In the Manger Adoration

In the Wonder of the Star
by Michael Romani

In my loss, I feel my shame
No longer certain in my own name
I know that I must reach out nearer
To all that I hold so much dearer

To the one who calls the stars
And the magi from near and far
I pray that I might hear His voice
And find my way to better choices

A Christmas star holds its mystery
The feeling surges in its divinity
Bleeding out in my mind's hesitation
Looking for answers to unanswerable questions

Two thousand years ago this star
Shone like a beacon for eyes afar
How brave they must have been
To go to where they were needed and when

I wish that I had that courage now
The best I have is to muddle through somehow
Knowing that I have failed those I love
I rest my teary eyes on the Lord above

To remember is not an adequate word
For the flood that has occurred
The certainty that it's all absurd
My mind's unclear, it's feeling blurred

Star gazing begun with my infant eyes
A twinkled star now wrinkled but I recognize
These moments are overwhelming and demanding
What has occurred is beyond my understanding

To my best, my footsteps follow where you lead
As I watch your saintly star as it still proceeds
Lord this has been a long and very hurtful journey
Won't you please tell me I have a better destiny

In my loss, I feel my shame
No longer certain in my own name
I know that I must reach out nearer
To all that I hold so much dearer

To the one who calls the stars
And the magi from near and far
I pray that I might hear your voice
Hanging on to this better choice
