When I opened the doors of my chest
I found your flames inside.
Imagine my surprise—
in the mirror, your face!

On the way to find myself
I met you instead.
In the search for God:
a human being.
In the search for you—
only God.

I do not know what I am—
God, human, you, me.
I know as little and as much
about yourself
(though I see your face
more clearly than my own).

From this confusion
my life is born
again and again and again.
