    Each morning I meet the dawn
    The rail of a treated wood deck my alter
    Eyes wide open to the ever brightening sun
    A slight chill runs through me
    As the eastern wind washes my face
    I pray

    Prayers of thanks
    Prayers of forgivness
    Prayers I will be forgiven
    With each breath of his air
    My prayers are heard
    This I know

    Confirmed by his creatures
    Robins and Bluejays who land softly
    They are close
    Unafraid of my human-ness
    For they join me in prayer
    Knowing the value of life
    Which is tested everyday

    Much is heard in the silence of morning
    The hopes and dreams of parents
    The cries of babies
    The cries of lovers
    The laughter of children

    Early morning
    When the earth is clean
    Prayers become the motivation
    The inspiration
    For me to be
    Who I woke up to be
    In the early morning

    BE
