God is invisibly visible –
Like a leaf from yesterday’s tree
Or tomorrow’s –
There no longer,
And, also, not yet.
It’s the same with our love –
Which gets strengthened both by distance
And absence –
Coming towards you when you’re no longer there –
And, sometimes, arriving before you’ve even come.
God is visibly invisible –
Like a momentary personal “joy,” and, yes, even the primeval “Big Bang”
When everything in the universe that now exists instantly burst out of nothing –
In some sense, aren’t they the same – both an absolute surprise?
It’s the same with how I love you –
Invisible, but more real than anything else in the world.
Running along through innumerable sunny days –
Suddenly, I wake up, next to you.
This is all I want in life –
To be invisibly visible –
Next to you.
