A Common Uncommon Soul

Swept up in the tailwind
It followed him in
While it cleared a path
Before him
Visible to those who looked
But felt by all around
Joy and sorrow
Peace and a broken heart
Mixed together
For a fragrance unnameable
Yet unforgettable
A smile formed 
As his cheeks expanded
Showing however
The longing 
In deep bright eyes
He was all at once
Yet one at a time
Engaging the singular
While seeing us all
History was held in him
The future formed by him
Grace and judgment
Bound up within him
So we followed the scent
Of divine and human
Taking us beyond ourselves
And deeper within
A common uncommon soul
Son of God
Son of man
Fully human
Fully divine
