I took a walk in the forest to speak with the trees,
in search of that something that everyone seeks.
So many wonders and questions that fill up my mind,
to help me understand my purpose this time.

Suddenly she came, as perfect as could be.
A blue bird singing this song from a tree.
You are the beauty you seek and the beauty you see,
please continue to shine, do not dim due to me.

We both have our own light, our own creation to share,
give into yourself and I will see you there.
Then I asked her with the deepest sincere,
who are you and what are you doing here?
I am nobody and everyone, all at once,
merely a reflection in a mirror that you can touch.
Just trust me and be, then over time you will see.
I then looked at her, confused with disbelieve.
But you look so peaceful so happy so free.
A natural state born to both you and to me.
You are the beauty You seek and the beauty You see,
please continue to shine, do not dim due to me.

We both have our own light, our own creation to share,
give into yourself and I will see you there.
Call it a gift, or a blessing if you must,
but please understand that in this we must trust.

Then the wind blew in and danced with the trees,
that is our Mother Earth and she is speaking to me.
Do what you must to be able to see
the beauty in all, the divine within me.

You are the beauty you seek and the beauty you see,
please continue to shine, do not dim due to me.
We both have our own light, our own creation to share,
give into yourself and I will see you there.

Then with the blink of an eye I could no longer see
but suddenly felt her presence deep within me.
My heart was full, my mind had slowed,
my questions now answered but I never needed the words
