The Loneliness of God

How can you know the love I have for you?
How can you know the longing I have for you?
How can you know the happiness I have for you?

If I could show you my full love,
I would have no need of you!
If I could cease my longing for you,
there would be no reason for you!
If I could give you my happiness,
there would be only I. 

It's what I want, and I am what I want.
There IS only I. 

Wherefrom comes this love?
Wherefrom comes this longing?
Wherefrom comes this happiness?

Without you, none of this would be!
But there is no you, there is only I. 

Therefore I have separated myself from myself
without doing that!

So that I may know and feel myself and my own love
through the love I have for you.

So that I may know and feel myself and my own longing
through the longing I have for you.

So that I may know and feel myself and my own happiness
through the happiness I have for you.

And so that you may share in my suffering and loneliness,
And know the love you have for yourself,
And know the longing you have for yourself,
And know the happiness you have for yourself,
I give you each other!

If it weren't for my unassuagable loneliness,
there would be no you!
