in combinations

For all the time I've spent solving the problem,
I've lost sight of the puzzle—
your name's still in my phone,
is it a relic or an altar?
Regardless, it's in there and you exist,
at least in the combination—
of letters and numbers in my contacts.
If it's a relic, where did you go?
If it's an altar, why do I care?
