devotional poetry · Himself

Devotion

I told You once that everything in me
reminds me of You.
Everywhere I am, You are also
because I wear You on my skin,
breathe You into my lungs,
see You reflected in my eyes.

Is this what devotion is, Beloved?
Is this what I am become?

Can it be that even now
You linger with me?
Can I still say I love You, dearest,
if I cannot say Your name?
