LAST NIGHT


Last night I hardly slept
Last night when the moon
Graced me with a square of milky light
I felt the sweetly reflected sun
I was filled with mantra and spirit
Till my arms were shaking

I remembered that God said to me
I am your Full Moon
And I felt Her
And I felt You
And I was so strong for you and me

This Typical Tuesday morning
I see too sharply What I am Not
I shall be strong for you
Be strong for me
Just be strong for me

We do not know how the dice will fall
We do not know if you or I can stand alone
We do know that
Together we are more than strong
