God, Do You Think Of Me?

God, do You ever think of me?
“I do.”
When do You think of me?
“My son, I think of you
When you do not think of Me.”
God, why? Why do You do that?
“My son, when you think of Me
I feel you are safe
And well-protected.
But when you forget to think of Me
I feel I am under obligation
To think of you,
To care for you
So that you do not go astray.”
