I was doing,
ㅤand you distracted me.
I was going,
ㅤand you distracted me.
I was becoming,
ㅤand you distracted me.
I was busy,

You are all.
All there is is everything.
You are everything.

Nothingness

ㅤSeen
Being…
ㅤKnown
Being…

Loved

Here I am Lord.
Here am I.
Here with you.
Here for you.
Simply…

Here

Simply…

Being…

Loved
