Emmanuel

I see you from my Place
Your broken, worried heart, turning the lights on and off for me, like code
Is he home safe yet?
Never wonder or worry about my Arrival
There were no red lights, no detours
Even the drunken revelers were safely tucked away
That predawn Monday morning when
It seemed that in the length of an exhale
I was somehow already

Home

I’m sorry I didn’t kiss you before the Ride back
And that I forgot to call you
But never wonder or worry about my Arrival
When I got here, I was breathless to find
Mirrors everywhere, as far as my Sky Blues could see
Reflecting infinite Me back to me
And finally I knew
As surely as I’d known what new song to play for you
That all you’d said was True

I am
I was

Perfect
