John 1:1 paraphrase

In the beginning he was the beginning
A light shining in the darkness
When both were still
Benign
The word with hands of love
A single face in the crowd
I picture you
(the word)
In my loneliness standing across the street
In front of the law
Office that was a funeral home
No one can forget
Like a man home from a distant war
Arriving without notice
Perhaps after word has arrived of your demise
Like a man back from the dead
Before our death
Held meaning
In the soft center
Of your hands
