If you follow my Instagram account you saw that I wrote a poem early this morning (technically yesterday morning now that I look at the clock). Here it is…as promised.
Titled: Intimate Momentum
Here I am, Lord. Here I am.
I will not complain,
for you are near.
You are not far, not far at all,
and you hear my breaths,
my every breath, as one leaning in
As one closer than my very breaths,
and breathing life-
As one hearing the thumping
of my heart, not distant, closer still
more than infinitely near
as if this present time is the same
as forever without gap, without lapse,
without distance, now…
You are now, encompassing always
which is to say- yesterday, today,
and tomorrow. Unchanging,
the same. Present.
And I am forever with you, for you
are ever present in me.
And we go on, forever.
