The Gift That I Am
I am resting.
It’s been a long time coming
And I cherish it, nourishing
My emotions are rounded like waves on a peaceful sea
My thoughts are relaxed like an unstretched rubber band
My body is off duty and acting like it
In this state I can feel the music and the love between a father and son and cat
Everything is a wonder with me and I with everything
The wind that smells like grass and forest dances the leaves, sways the trees
And touches me like the gift I am.
People all around the world, for all time, celebrate the gift they are.
I think they don’t know this
But that is ok, I am grateful for their expression of the gift that they are
Because know it or not, when I allow for it,
The gift that they are touches the gift that I am.
And I think that is the essence of life.
