449. My two friends

I have only two friends:
God and man.
In the world of ignorance,
Man is my friend.
In the sky of Light,
God is my friend.

My man-friend secretly whispers
I need him more than he needs me.
My God-friend openly declares
He needs me more than I need Him.
He adds: He is ready to wait indefinitely
For my arrival.
