Early in the a.m. with I Am

Before my mind turns on
Before my heartbeat revs
Before the sunlit dawns
There’s a voice in my head

Just moments before I stir
Just seconds before I wake
A presence takes hold of my soul
And causes it to sublimate

This love envelopes me fully
This presence is tangibly real
I sense your arms around me
And, there’s no greater joy to feel

You speak to me so gently
Yours words are like flecks of gold
My soul savors all your splendor
Your presence, dear God, makes me whole
