"God, circle back—

like breath inhaled,

like a memory unveiled,

like falling in love,

like arms wrapped in a hug.


God, circle back—

like the moon and the sun,

like the beat of my heart

or the seasons that come.


God, circle back.

Circle back and stay awhile.

Stay awhile and draw close.

God, circle back.

We need you the most."
