You woke me up this morning,
streaming sunlight i could see;
I didn’t think to speak to you-
Even after my coffee.
Went right into my daily grind,
full schedule in my head;
remembered my devotion-time,
decided to wait for bed.
My day was rushed and stressful,
full of impatience, anger too-
when it was halfway done,
started to miss you.
Before the day continued,
carved out some time to stop.
The house can live a few more minutes,
so can broom and mop.
As I read and spoke to you, a balm poured
on my soul,
was a little ashamed, and a little tired,
you made my mind whole.
