Long-distance romance

After Romans 1:1-17

It’s a romance, long-distance,
a longing to touch and join,
to encourage and exchange
gifts, a romance of faith
on both sides. It is 
a reciprocal romance, 
a desire to be together,
to share, to encourage,
to break bread, to be with,
enjoying presence,
enjoying communion.
The romance is more
than a desire, more
than a gift; the romance is
an obligation, joyfully met.
