I Am Here

If you listen
you will hear me

I am in the air
riding on the wind
and in the songs
of the birds
and whales alike
I am the voice
that cries out in the night
and the one that soothes
bringing comfort and rest
Listen and hear
I am here

If you look
you will see me

I am in the tallest mountains
and the rolling seas
in the trees bringing shade,
nourishment and rest
and in the moon,
sun and stars
I am in the caregivers,
infants and children,
the friends and passerby’s
Look and see
I am here

If you pray
you will know me

I am present
in the beads
held in the hands
and in the words
whispered in the night
I am in the sorrow
and the joy
Listening to unspoken words
and devastated souls
Pray and know
I am here

If you love
you will feel me

I am in the heart
shared freely
and the one that cries
openly with joy
and sorrow
I am in the helping hands
strangers passing by
and in the newborn babe
cradled in its mother’s arm
Love and feel
I am here

hear me
see me
talk to me
love me
I am in all things
standing by, and with you
I am here
