But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17; NLT).

For then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NLT).

My soul
Is part of you,
But here on earth
It’s in exile.

When I seek you
In contemplation,
May my soul unite
With yours –
However briefly.

Please help me
To practice your presence
Day and night,
So my soul remains
In touch with yours.

At death,
It will return to you,
To be united
With the One
Who gave it.

In Jesus’ name,
