In The Twinkling Of An Eye

It’s raining this morning
and I’m in love
although I don’t quite know
what with
Maybe it’s with thought:
“In the beginning was the Word”
That other self
always with me
We’ve been friends since conception
in spirit
perhaps even before:
“And the Word was made flesh”
We’ve had our differences of opinion
hated each other sometimes
But we’ve grown together
learned to listen
and I suspect
we shall be one in eternity:
“We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed,
in a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye.”
