Chasm

what have I gained,

if I have lost my Lord?

He is there, rising above my desires, though I am but looking at the ground

What is lost if I have my faith?

Looking up, as His rewards come down.

To see beyond the boundaries of the heart,

Is that not Love?

Is that not Faith?

To depend on flesh, blood, and bone;

That is a chasm, and we fall alone.
