come, Friend
so i can breathe and live again
without You
my heart is constricted
and my breath
comes painfully

so i can expand like the sky
soar up like the wind
pour out like a cloud

all day i collect beautiful words
to string into songs for You
when You are away
they wither and turn to dust
come, so these beautiful words
can bloom and grow a garden

so i am swallowed up
by the space
around You

nothing else matters!
