A Little While Longer
Bishop Carol Gallagher
A little while longer and the mountains of snow
will have melted away and green will reach up
there will be a new season and the promise of life.
A little while longer and there will be great pain
there will be loss and breaking open and
the whole world will be transformed by her birthing.
A little while longer and the child will be grown
the elder will have passed to glory and the river
of life’s blessings will keep us moving on.
