Oh star in the sky

you twinkle brightly upon my eye.

You’re there when I go to sleep

for my beautiful soul to keep!

Spring has sprung

Do a jig

Take a run

And…  have some fun.

Laugh, scream

Think again.

Dream Big……

Fly freely

Freely fly

And Let Be.

Do you hear it

Stop to listen
You will hear and be heard.

Listen to the Journey
Beside the Waters
In Quiet.

And Know that I Am.
