SPIRIT

August 9, 1997

We're all made up of stardust
and of dreams
our souls roamed
light years through the everness of time
from galaxy to distant galaxy
before we found our planetary home


we think that we are bodies
until the day we understand
that we are air and spirit
the stuff of stars
with heaven close at hand
our mortal struggles mask
the inner light
that tries so hard to shine
through our dark night
until finally we discover
that all along
we have had
perfect sight


we vainly
search to win
love on the human plane
paying with tears
and solitary pain
for all our hopes and fears
while all the time
we are already One
the way we all breathe air
unseen, yet just as present,
is the spirit
we all share


one day we raise our eyes
beyond the worry and the pain
and find the way
we can be whole again
grateful each day
for the miracle of life
sky above
and earth below
the beauty of it all
a never-ending show
free for the taking
joy ours for the making
gratitude with each new dawn
fresh-breaking
no more lonely aching
one heart
in all hearts -
our sudden waking


planetary pilgrims
on our journey
to the end of time
we only need to understand
that we alrady shine
and humbly share our love
in all the corners where we roam
knowing
in the soul's profound simplicity
with every soul we meet
we find our own way
home.


We take most of our lifetime
to shed the human limitations
we impose
we feel the pain
when from our loves we part,
until we learn
no love is ever really lost,
living forever in our heart
the secret's not in finding love
but in the giving
it's not in having the "perfect life"
it's in the living


our healing journey
lies far beyond our solitary pain
when we enter the All That Is
we are made new again


should we forget for a moment or two
the wonder we once knew
all we need to do
is look up at the sky
filled with a million stars
to remember just how beautiful
we are
