Close

I want to be with you, where you are
So close.
Close like the day your hands formed me in that woman’s womb
So close.
I can only be in one place at one time
But you shine, Omni-presently.
This heart inside of me screams more of you and less of me 
And therefore I must search for you.
Therefore I must search for you.
Those that seek him with all their hearts will find him
In the midst of silence, turmoil, and violence
There’s this stillness.
And though there’s a stillness, it grips me.
To have faith and believe
That if I wait, then I would see, my God.
My God.
And so I’m standing in the midst of atmospheres un-shifted
But I shift, believing that it would bring me closer to you.
I reach out…
My hands into the winds..
My heart, hoping to draw you in..
My song, sung into the distance to the one I’ve met.
Sung to the one I’ve met.
Looking around me, these things surround me, but have I touched you yet?
My flesh is not speaking but my spirit is seeking 
And I want to be with you where you are.
I can only be in one place at one time
But you shine, Omni-presently.
And I’ve been searching for you
Finding you to be 
So close.
