I did not pray for your good health

When a loved one is unwell and far away, and we are clueless of what he/she is going through, unable to be of any help –


I did not pray
For your good health,
I prayed that I experience
What you’re going through.
Just so I know.
Just so that I can
Be with you.

I want to hurt
Where it is
Hurting you –
Same spot, intensity.
Just so I know.
Just so that in the knowing
I can be with you.

I did not pray
For your good health.
Pain is so innate to life
Why should I pray
That you be bereft.
I pray to experience
It with you
Just so I know
What is going on with you.

I did not pray
For your good health.
I am too busy
Loving you.
