His vital thinks
To live with God the disciplinarian
Is ridiculous.

His mind thinks
To live with God the simpleton
Is ridiculous.

His body thinks
To live with God the inconsiderate
Is ridiculous.

His heart feels
To live without God the Beloved
Is ridiculous.

His soul knows
To live without God the Lover
Is ridiculous.
