Thought I could never get here
My soul, it was always near
Never told it, “Please hear,
the words, clear
I have love.”
Allah gave me inner home,
This time I’ve been sharing alone
–Alone time with Him I find
Is so dear and so sublime
I found what I needed all along.
Told myself these lies
Repeat what they all repeat
I think it’s time to rewind and delete
Start fresh and find my own sweet
Exists, quiet, settled peace
I’d never understand
Until inside my hands I finally had
Hands reaching for my phone
Then thought better of them drones in my head.
Like the leaves in the wind flutter,
My words never come in stutters
When I’m conversing with Him.
Feel the winter warm my body’s every limb.
And even on those lonesome days,
The times when I am tracing solo ways,
I find that I am calm
I never feel alarmed
Steady in my pace
Never stuck in a place.
Found love inside a hurricane,
These skies will turn real blue,
I’m finally feeling true,
I think I look downright brand new.
