One Day We Wake


Belly of darkness holding seeds galore

Divine sparks ignite life in the wee morning hour

Miraculous cells appear one… then another

As a magical act within our earth mother


Growing, twisting, stretching, we unfold

Amazing beings with many stories untold

Reaching toward the sun is the aim

Even at times, we welcome the rain


In the moment we run, laugh and play

While growing older, often losing our way

Dwelling more often in future and past

Happiness we once had, does not seem to last


Searching now for what we have lost

With angst and frustration at any cost

Then one day, we wake to see

It never was lost, “It’s inside of me!”


Love, joy and peace that is so divine

Comes back to our memory just in time

Consciously living out the rest of our days

We create and unfold in many beautiful ways


Then one day, we wake to see

ALL we were ever meant to BE!
