You taught me to be here with my full attention,
To cherish each moment as precious:
More sacred than memory
Or the dreams that tomorrow may bring.
Is the milk that sustains us
And in it is a beauty and wonder
That I used to search for,
Imagining it was far yonder.
Is a flower in crescendo,
Vibrant with the full colour
Of all its yesterdays.
Here and now, I am the sum total of all my days.
You have taught me the mindfulness of being
And I honour this, with gratitude and stillness:
The song of you, present in the core of me.
