Only Human

Only Human
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

See God in her eyes,
feel the compassion he seeks,
channel God within you,
don't forget to breathe.

He matters, not as helper, 
but as helped.
Saving a life, she says,
but what of hers?

Sometimes not helping is help enough,
being together God's Holy Presence,
affirming with a glance,
with silence. 

...God in our eyes,
and yet they are human eyes.
God in my soul,
and yet I am limited.

(Don't forget to breathe.)
