God is Missing …

God is never missing


Always on

Always present


Yet the greatest faith

Is the lack of it

Practicing love when it’s unreturned

Or so it seems


Giving to the ingrate

Who seems to always want more

Living a life of servanthood

When all desires pull me elsewhere


These are the marks of love unleashed

A love hidden deep in the dark night of the soul

Richer than the mystic who has affirmation

Stronger than the preacher with perceived truth and waves it like a flag


For the lover who loves quietly and silently without reward

Is the truer one

Where sadness is felt but not transmitted

Where the recourse is another visit to the well


In the hope Jesus will be there someday
