As I exhale what weighs on me
I listen to the wisdom of the trees
Inhale the life these giants give
A beautiful gift to be able to LIVE
They say you grew big from a seed
Planted here, kind of like me
They say you swam in darkness a while
Listening to a heartbeat, can you hear mine?
They say you took your first breath and cried
Not of sadness but to express your might
They say you see this world with wonder
With a curious heart and much left to ponder
What they do not say, is what you will become
someone who knows, you and I, are one.
