"They entered the house and saw the child in the arms of Mary, his mother. Overcome, they kneeled and worshipped him" Matthew 2:11 (NIV)

Maybe years of hoping, wishing, desiring
And now, the realisation.

I spent much of the journey
Thinking what I would say:
What grand phrases and eloquent words I would use
To impress the king.
Now I am here,
Words fail me;
I am overcome.
