To Come Again

They looked up
   long, long ago,
   amazed, perplexed,
   wanting Him to stay.
Still He went up,
   lost in the clouds,
   leaving a promise
   to come again.

Others joined them,
   not as long ago,
   sure they knew
   it was time.
Still He delayed
   remaining away
   waiting for the time
   to come again.

And so do we
   watch and wait,
   but only with hope,
   longing for His face.
In the clouds He said,
   upward our face,
   because He promised
   to come again.

(Mark 13:26)
