Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Sacred Holy Breath


Sacred holy breath
Flows gentle across my chest

Not a sound no air displaced
Not a tear no second guess

Just peace, in my sacred face
Just released love that was put to test

Having hands holding each others fears
Holding hands fate-ing future seers

More than holy we have arrived
Even in this insanity our time abides

sacred Holy, breathe again
Sacred Breath Holy again and again

Flows gentle if this wind
Your love can send
