This I Feel, Breathe And See

Who is there unaware and in doubt,
That I live to be attached to You?
Have I been excluded to delude on my path?
Am I not as valid as a blade of grass?

In lilting winds I cling.
Like a leaf that buds to grow,
To then become old to wither from a tree.
Proceeding successfully from one stage to the next.
I need no proof to show this.
I am exposed therefore I need not ask.
Or become perplexed by Your given tasks!

This I feel, breathe and see!

Who is there unaware and in doubt,
Every thought I have carried about...
Generates from and connects to You.
Every movement on this planet,
Has been created by You and approved.

Those shallow in darkness,
With perceptions they exist to live apart...
Would not experience the radiance of light.
Nor would sleep peacefully at night with quiet hearts,
If not for You to soothe them in slumber.

And those who sustain,
A choice to wallow away in fear and pain...
Accept their sufferings in separate agonies.
As if in aloneness,
They stay to appreciate their self inflicted grief.
With a straining to remain...
In a hopelessness that's gained.

Who is there unaware and in doubt,
That I live to be attached to You?

In lilting winds I cling.
Like a leaf that buds to grow,
To then become old to wither from a tree.
Proceeding successfully from one stage to the next.
I need no proof to show this.
I am exposed therefore I need not ask.
Or become perplexed by Your given tasks!

This I feel, breathe and see!
Within a never ending eternity,
Too massive for me to conceive.
As I gratefully continue,
On my blessed and treasured journey.
Acknowledging as I witness...
This experience is not all about me,
To profile or prejudge!
