Road to Emmaus

         …Jesus himself came near and went with them,
         but their eyes were kept from recognizing him.
                   —Luke 24.15-16

When there is shattered glass in my heart,
when the road is long and dull,
when the past has bent, the future vanished,
when I seem to walk from darkness toward darkness—
I pray not that the story be changed
but that my eyes be open
to you,
here beside us,
opening our eyes.
