grieving for that which i had let go of

and never knew i had let go of

 

until now

 

grieving for time i cannot get back

as i never knew i had given it away

 

until now

 

grieving for a dream that somehow could

have been but was not

 

until now

 

wishing for a world that dances in beauty

and holds  it’s people

tenderly in love

 

but has not

does not

will not

 

until when

 

when will we hold ourselves dear

 

all my relations

 

when we will honour all of creation

 

all my relations

 

Father Sky

Mother Earth

and all who dwell between

 

all my relations

 

when will we learn

to sing our song

of silence

 

all my relations

 

to drum out the rhythm

of our

deepest

heart connection

 

all my relations

 

to come together with a

melodious

roar

 

all my relations

 

to stand together in

harmony

 

all my relations

 

as if a great tree

moving in the moment

 

strong but flexible

present but fluid

rooted but free

 

all my relations

 

my heart bleeds

for the world i live in today

 

red tears stain this Earth

 

dropped tears

 

of beauty

of re~union

of re~membering

of re~minder

 

all my relations

 

today is that day

 

call in beauty

call in sacred community

call in love

call in the medicine of our souls

call in the music

 

all my relations

    This one makes me want to chant and dance, Paul… feet bare and soul open to the sky and other people, under a moon as bright as the tone of your words, as powerful as the honesty of the questions.

    The rise and fall of rhythm in this contemplative piece is enchanting. There’s a certain kind of calmness within that drumming beat, more like mindfulness and healing. Brilliant write!

    A very nice song. Paul. “All my relations”. Will it work with “Come together (Right now)”? I think they have a similar theme. I loved that song.
