So sitting here on the porch this morning, I am listening to her sing and writing down how I feel. It's just a morning, like any other, but today I feel very happy and peaceful and want to share that.
soft quiet morning sounds
before the world comes alive.
birds having conversation
in a language I cannot understand.
sitting with an open heart
I feel the hope in this morning.
with outstretched arms, open wide
I embrace myself from within.
maybe it really is that simple
maybe happiness can just be.
today when I awoke a calm covered
every inch of my soul.
I awoke to the feeling that someone
had walked into my room.
unsettled at first, I think maybe
this feeling was what came in.
last night I remembered times long past
and who I was in those days.
in the face of a friend from that time gone by
I saw where I stand today.
lifetimes change you constantly
ever evolving, never to be still.
on mornings like this I open my eyes
and simply take it all in.
treasures and magic and gifts abound
in this life for us to perceive.
their worth, their value, our need for them
all we need is to see.
it might be that simple, or maybe it’s not
but today I believe that it is.
as the world begins to awaken
I will softly sing to her.
This is Lisa Marshall singing Simple. The song has many versions but my favorite has always been just her and her guitar and this beautiful song.
