It’s a strange feeling to have her closer in proximity than you
You were there growing up with us, when we both seemed dead
You became close to both of us only when the family divided and fell apart
You dragged me, effectually, as the puritans would say
But her…You towed her away
I now study her scriptures and ask, How did you survive?
Why did you survive?
I was given so much after everything fell apart
You had so much taken away that never returned
You abandoned us, perhaps, for a summer
But we abandoned you and cut you off like cancer
And we never returned
But you did return
Thank you for returning
And please, thank him for returning you to me
Such intercessions tow me closer in proximity to him
