Here, not there

I’m here, not there.  They’re there, not here.
      In unexpected moments, I’m not where I should be.
                             I feel lost.  I feel alone.
                                       But, He remains.
I wonder, I flounder.  They struggle, they stumble.
                                  But He refuses, to give up on us.
                                           It took me by surprise
          I took a day off  without anyone’s permission,
                                                  even my own.
This should not be. This can not be.  It is not allowed.
                                I need to be here.  I need to remain.
                                                        In Him.
