Do you remember when you were in this unknown wide open place,
And everything fell into a particularly wide-open time and space?
When the day would seem to go on toward infinity, and never coming to an end
And every body you met stopped to say hello, hug you, and call you friend?
That infinitel time and place.
Back when you were everything, something and nothing at all
Just but a moment in time spreading across the day moving into night fall.
That wide open time and place.
You were a universe with no clocks no boundaries no time to be lost
And every musical note brought meaning to your life with no cost.
That boundary-less time and space
How can you describe the oneness that you felt?
Like your heart opening to the cosmos from where you once dwelt.
No matter, no need to describe if you open and return there now
Like leaning toward forever, remembering the who when and how.
Mama do you love me
she would ask once again
And her mother would gather her
in arms built for the two of them
Not only do I love you
my darling, my sweet dear
But you are full of love, brimming over
from right inside of here
And her mama would rest a hand
on the middle of her small chest
And cuddle her close, breathing her in
Feeling ever so blessed
To hold this child of love
this spirit of God in her arms
To pray for all blessings
to keep her from the world’s harms
The sun came up
And she closed her eyes
Ignoring the growing light
And color of the skies
The sun rose higher
And with eyes closed tight
She woke up inside
To her own ease and light
Repeating and returning
Mind wanders across internal sky
Watch the clouds floating over
She is preparing to live and die
It’s the morning ritual
And so much more
It’s the opening of the self
Revealing of the cosmic core.
Good morning ritual
Her own life lay from within it grew
Letting go of past and future
Awakening through and through
