My mind is saturated with pains of each day,
Though my heart keeps beating
with rhythms of love;
My eyes see the beauty of mysteries unfolding,
Reflecting the Light of heaven above.
Unbowed, I am stung with sharpness of sorrow,
Though my spirit keeps leaping,
triumphant as ever;
My soul slumbers not, only my body;
And I dream in my waking dreams of endeavor.
Forever must I love’s bridges cross,
Spanning the length of my life
on this earth,
Towering o’er seas of my freedom of movement –
Steps I take considered to be worth.
My needs are many while failures unbridled
Keep galloping through the
ways of success,
But I see the road open as I keep going
No matter the strain, albeit the stress.
