When you stand beside the ocean
resonating with each wave,
Shimmering beside the ocean
ebbing flowing with each wave,
It’s as if you’re moving with it
spiraling and uncontained.
When the moon shines in your window
and it wakes you with its light,
Near full moon shines in your window
wakes you up with silver light,
Even shadows turn to magic
and everything’s all right.
When the birds begin the morning
fill the air up with their song,
Robin cardinal and blue jay
sing the sun up with their song,
Even grey days seem to open
make you feel like you belong.
If someone should think about you
get in touch just say hello,
An old friend is thinking of you
gets in touch to let you know,
All your worries are forgotten
all those things that brought you low.
Then your mind distills and empties
leaving room for what you’re not,
All those thoughts retreat get quiet
now there’s room for what you’re not,
You can hear life’s heartbeat whisper
you give thanks for what you’ve got.
