The Hebrew:  korban
translated as sacrifice
means to bring nearer

When you hug me please
lean your left side to my left
so our hearts are near

Marriage maybe tests
in having someone you love
nearby all the time

True friends are nearby
even when they're far away
others, the reverse

Isaiah said G-d
repeatedly spoke of peace
to the far and near

This one really grabbed me. So I leaned so our heart would beat next to one another.

Peace be with you and yours.

It's not hard to be
always near your spouse your foot

Let me try that one again:

It's not hard to be
always near your spouse, your heart,
is always near too.

Beloved always near
is not an imposition.
My heart is near too.
