Together We Say
You say happiness, I say Peace,
You say Unity, I say dignity,
You say Sadness, I say transition,
You say Anger, I say Passion.
I say Love, you say Pollyanna,
I say Believe, you say wishful thinking,
I say Simplicity, you say I need,
I say Compassion, you say Right or Wrong.
Have you heard the wings of a bird as it flies by,
Have you danced with an Eagle,
Have you laid down in the dirt and bared it all,
Have you felt the pull of a force unknown to you.
I say I have
It is enough for me
This sitting here is enough for me, breathing, loving, and being, feeling and seeing,
The humble reward of a life well lived.
