    For Verna.

    Look to the skies
    You will purify yourself.
    So many reasons
    To be alive.
    Look deep within
    For God's guiding light
    If you believe
    Then so will I.

    We are rising,
    Rising, falling
    As ocean tides.
    I'll hold you closer,
    So much closer,
    Come alive.

    Maybe the flowing wind
    Will dry our tears away.
    So many reasons
    To be alive.
    Look to the rivers
    Flowing deeply to the sea.
    Miracles occur,
    I'll testify..

    We are calling,
    Rising, falling.
    We come alive.
    I'll hold you closer
    So much closer.
    We will survive.

    So much in nature to look to, to remind us of all that is vibrant and thriving. Such ease to this piece poet, and I loved the calm, determined flow of it.
