Wednesday Poem

Before the cosmos – my love there was you

Long before there were
…. any stars

When the great empty void
…. was packed full of a hundred-thousand
other even emptier voids

There was a soft whisper in the dark
…. ..~ and maybe this whisper was more like a song
…. ~ and maybe this song was more like a poem
~ and maybe this poem was more like a prayer

And this soft whisper that was
a song that was a poem
that was a prayer
kept uttering your
name and saying

“I can’t wait for the
day you come to find me”

yes, even before
the first crack of
Genesis lightning
spread its dandelion
seed across the cosmos
you were the first thing
on the mind of a waking God

please hold on
…. you matter more than matter itself

please hold on
…. you have more time than time itself

please hold on
…. you have existed before existence

please hold on
