Water's Edge

I woke up before the birds today,
And walked down to the sounds of the cold,
Winter,
Waters edge. 

In a whispered weep,
I laid down on the sand.
My weathered mind,
In search of sleep. 

I could feel the soul of the world,
Through the earth underneath. 
It's heartbeat throbbing,
As if it were about to speak. 

At that moment,
The morning birds in their delight,
Began to sing. 
And I was brought back to my feet.
I knew then that Mother Earth had heard me weep.

Reflection.

When I look at you,
I see a piece of myself,
Through the eyes of an innocent child.

Reflecting freedom,
In your warm glow,
Your tender smile I hold close to my heart.

It makes me happy,
To know you,
To see you,
To love you as you are.

Innocent.

In all the universe,
There is only one you,
And one of us,
Our time together is cherished.

Promise me,
You'll never stop smiling,
Glowing,
Loving,
Growing,
Giving.

Because this life is sweet,
And no matter what they say.
You are special.
Shine your light on them,
Bask in your glow and innocence.

And most importantly,
Know you are loved.
Know you are cherished.
I love you.
