always here

Maybe the soul is the intersection
of the empirical universe
and the whole of personality.

For time is the vessel where
the temporal nature of things bide
and beyond, heaven beckons timeless.

Gaze upon the stars see sad
eyes wilting in their own light –
or look to the hopeless
and find a difference.

Bind us , O Lord, as one soul
to have personality with You
then to look to heaven and know
You are there and always here.
