When I Woke

When I woke
        In the morning
                Ah god
You were there
        To right my face
                You were there
To press my bloom
        Ah god
                You were there
To lift my stone
        You were there
                Ah god
To hold my space
        You were there
                To caw my bones
You were there
        Ah god
                To leave all words
Ah god
        You were there
                When I woke
I was missing
        Ah god
                You were there
