Do You Still Pray? 

He asked me the question, and in the midst of the following tension, in my hesitation, he looked away. He let the moment pass, too afraid to hear the answer. I had the wrong one. His eyes told me he knew it already, but my eyes still rushed to confirm it.

I Pray

I never asked for him yet here he is. You gave him to me.

I doubt I deserve him, same way he doubts he deserves me.

True, I might love him less than he loves me but I love him with every cell incorporated in the formation of me. 

So I ask of you God, please, please don’t take him away from me.
