Come now, and worship, but do not come alone.
Bring with you all the ones that you have loved.
the hands that held yours, the shoulders that carried you,
the arms that embraced you, the eyes that watched over you.
Bring also the skinned knees that you bandaged,
and the tangled hair that you combed;
the heads that butted yours,
and the feet that kept step with yours.
Come now, and worship, and bring them all along:
for God knows them well,
and welcomes them here.
