He is Not Here

I went back to find Him this morning

Right where I left Him last

Right there in that same, tired spot

But He was not there

He was not exactly as I had left Him last

Why do I look for the Living in this hand-carved container?

Why do I expect Him to stay here?

He is not here

Maybe I’ll find Him somewhere else today–somewhere outside

Or perhaps He’ll find me
