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
The only truth in a reflection is the one you tell yourself.
What you are seeing staring back, is the shell of an essence inside the self.
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.
I’ll take this step to be with you
To be in your silence, to be in your truth
Follow this path to where it may lead
Admire these wonders you’ve shared with me
Withhold my judgements of how you’ve grown
Will study your details from water to stone
I’ll give you the gift of my attention
Revere my existence in your dimension
Will close my eyes to feel your center
Then open them wide so to remember.
Continue to create these memories
Of your beautiful world of mysteries.
