near (pt. 1)

god is strength
god is ease
god is near
al-Qarib
god is sunlight
god is the breeze
god is the earth
god is the sea
in every atom
god lives and breathes
in every cell
in you and me
heaven’s not locked away
behind a door, without a key
heaven is god
just listen, feel
taste and see
inhale, exhale
smell the wood of the trees
god is here and now
heaven charges no fee

Based upon al-Baqarah 2:186
