Prayer of Asperation

I have broken out of my prison
but I am still not free.

I have been comforted in weakness
yet I have too little strength.

I have experienced the warmth and depth of human friendship
but I am not fulfilled.

I seek, I give, I possess
and yet I yearn - 

It is You I seek, O Lord,
my unlosable friend forever.

Fill me up, Lord -
complete me -

I will be restless
Until I rest in You.
