I am glad I didn’t know the way it would all go,
Though we long to know
Or we think we do
Would it not be too steep
The road too long
The endings too difficult to bear.
I ask you if you knew
Would you still dream
Live in hope, the rising of the sun each day
Or would you bury your head and say
No, not this I cannot.
I am happy to live out each day, the road ahead unknown
The days before long gone
Pleased to ask myself
Can you Lori, see this coming day
With the grace and love
The creator asks of you.
Can you meet it in the ways of the Spirit
In Peace, Love and Forgiveness
No matter the dance
No matter the story
No matter what I am required to let go.
Can I right myself, clean myself of sorrow, malice, and shame.
Can I begin again,
Can I be born again unto this Holy Day,
I say Yes
And bow my head.
