before

i said i had never felt God the way i did

when i looked at a tree or a river

it was true

 

 

now

i have never felt God the way i did

when your arms wrapped around me

we listened to a poem on youtube

and the volume was too loud

everyone heard it screaming

 

you told me you loved me

you squeezed into the space next to me

i forgot about everything but you and the words

 

we were

holding each other

we were

the entire galaxy

pulling together

becoming

one

 

before

i would have said

i only felt God

in the trees

or the water

 

now

i have never felt God the way i did

when your breath was on my neck

when your head pressed against mine

when your arms were around me

when we were the galaxy

becoming

one
