564. God feels sad

The doctor fails;
And God feels sad.
He feels sad
That He did not give the doctor
The life-saving medicine.

The patient dies;
And God feels sad.
He feels sad
That He did not give the patient
The message of immortal life.

The relatives weep;
And God feels sad.
He feels sad
That He did not tell them
That Heaven is the second floor
And earth is the first floor
Of the same building.
God feels sad
That He forgot to tell them
Even the name of the building.
Love is its name.
