The Better Lesson Never Teaches Directly

I live next because God loved me first.
I love because my father showed

God to me by his eyes. Then, my longing life
becomes confession. To honour my father,

I honour God. To honour this life, I give
my life away to anyone I may help,

to my children who are God’s children, who live
because God is patient enough with me

to let me stay longer. In this way, I cradle
my children for the soft kiss goodnight.

When I pay attention to my children,
I am giving my father’s attention back.

When I whisper to my children that I love them,
I am giving their souls to the Lord.
