Otherwise

Is there a God?
I think so.
Otherwise
There may not be a sunrise or a sunset.
Only a long, black night.

Is there a God?
I think so.
Otherwise
There may not be a butterfly
And azaleas wilting from disappointment.

Is there a God?
I think so.
Otherwise
There may not be a song or a poem
And never a story.

Is there a God?
I think so.
Otherwise
There may not be a cat’s meow
Or a dog’s happy greeting.

Is there a God?
I think so.
Otherwise
There may not be a hug or a kiss or a laugh
Only the loneliest loneliness.

Yet the world a-color with sunflowers
Robins sing, squirrels chatter and a child’s giggle
A lover’s perfume, a morning coffee and an apple danish
And my cat snuggles on my lap.

Is there a God?
I think so.
Otherwise…
