Come and see

         Jesus said to them, “What are you looking for?”
         They said … “Where are you staying?”
         He said to them, “Come and see.”
         They came and saw where he was staying,
         and they remained with him that day.
                  —John 1.38-39

You’re not looking for an answer.
What you seek isn’t an explanation
and can’t be explained.
You’re looking for a presence.
Not a what but a who.
You can’t understand.
You can only see.
But you can’t see from there.
You have to come along.
You have to stay a while.
Nothing may happen.
You might just be there together.
Remain with him.

That might be all.
It will be enough.
         Come and see.

                  Stay there.
