Proof that there is no God

The tilt of her head,

The curve of her breast,

The waist I’ve encircled,

Of the girl I’ve caressed.

I know in this universe,

That we are alone,

For if God really existed,

He’d have kept her for his own.

 

The gift of her love,

The child that she bore,

The help I’ve enjoyed,

From the wife I’ve adored.

I know in this universe,

That we are alone,

For if God really existed,

He’d have denied me her loan.

 

The wealth of her words,

The light in her eyes,

The soul I’ve witnessed,

At the death I’ve denied.

I know in this universe,

That we are alone,

For if God really existed,

She’d have arrived safely home.
