I shall stay awake all night
sitting within my own stillness.
I shall listen for the echo of the drum beat
then journey to its source.
I shall return to that place from which the heart whispers;
Where lovers reveal moonlight secrets:
where spirit is born.
At dawn I will go out
into the unbroken day.
I shall walk lightly with clear eyes and an open heart
so that I will be present to receive your blessings
with the awareness that they deserve.
I shall bathe in the music of new beginnings
and bear witness to the mysteries you have revealed.
When the world stirs I will turn to face you and say “YES!
and YES!” because I am not afraid to give myself completely
whilst honouring my own sweet truth;
So that each step is a humble offering
to adorn your dance.
I shall empty my mind to receive what we had always known
then bow down to honour your beauty.
I will remember yesterday’s sorrows
only for the wisdom which they taught.
And what was not given with love I shall set aside:-
Liberating our ancient hurts
to be returned to that place from which the heart whispers;
Where lovers create sun-kissed futures
and spirit is born
We long to send our spirits up – To soar above the sky
Yet our tiny hearts will tremble – All the faster when we try
We would be steadfast warriors – With intentions made of gold
Yet our human ways will stumble – On the same mistakes of old
Invisible threads connect us – In ways we don’t perceive
Yet we imagine we are separate – And alone the ‘I’ must grieve
In darkness we find lightness – As healing grows through pain
Then we see in one another – The beauty and the shame
We carry deep within us – The source of all that is
Yet we struggle in confusion – Imperfect incomplete
Intelligence misleads us – It feeds the ego mind
In the search for truth and wisdom – We can’t know the things we find
Our questions lead us higher – Then throw us to the ground
It isn’t ‘till the asker fades – That nothing can be found
In the stillness of the night time – By the language of the wild
We pass through the fear that bound us – To reclaim the dreaming child
In dancing and in music – And In the simple joy to be
In the quiet understanding – That we share we can be free
We breathe light toward the centre – As we ride upon the wave
To cry and laugh as love transforms us – Humble gentle brave
