How is it I can love You?

How is it I can love You
     within me,
     yet see You from afar?

How is it I embrace You
     within myself,
     yet see you spread across the heavens?

You know. You alone.
     You, who made this mystery,
     You who shine
like the sun in my breast,
     You who shine
     in my material heart,
          immaterially.

 – St Symeon the New Theologian
