Monotheistic Relationship

six together

one apart

like the Sabbath

on the seventh day

it's a sigh of relief

but also a sigh of sorrow

as this is not a time

of leisure or rest

but just a time

without work

without labor

of love

of a working relationship

and in this Sabbath

I behold an alter

of memories

and holy things

a photo

a message

things that I pray by

things that I wish by

things that hold me

strong and steadfast

blindly I'll wait

for a sign

a notice

a letter

and faith will keep

me here waiting

for the salvation

I know will come

I believe will come

I hope will come

please, I pray

save my soul
