Verse On Verse

Distant Lover     

She says she loves me.  But she does not call.

I hear her tell others.  But I don't hear from her,  "Despite the sufferings, my love is true... merely a test as He is wont to do.  The precedent was set in Job," she reminds.

Once, she called daily, sometimes more. We'd spend quiet evenings together.  I would comfort her throughout the night.  She would awake with me in her thoughts--I held a prominent place then.  And there was no need for her to tell others--  

Now . . . her telling is the only way they know.


Luke 21:36 (KJV) 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
