In morning’s stillness, the owl sings to me of days gone by.
Soft darkness surrounds my heart and brings me back in time.
Back to a small building, a small town,
36 years in the past to an empty waiting room and dimly lit corridors.
To a quiet hospital’s artificial twilight while the world sleeps on,
Unaware of the new life signaling its time to begin.
It was just us, waiting together, physically connected as one
But for only a few hours more.
Your birth was the beginning of our separate journeys but as
A physical separation only, we remained together in heart and mind.
In that early September morning mist, as a tiny girl, you took your place beside me,
And changed my life with your smile.
You left the temporary shelter of my body,
And joined the permanent shelter of my heart.
Your presence in this world begin on that beautiful morning but
Your soul was already here, waiting for you to come back.
Right from the beginning your wisdom and light shown through your tiny eyes.
Your smile contagious, your grace and love profound.
You are an eternal soul born to bring a spark of goodness and light back to this world,
Your simple presence making the world and my life a better place.
You are now a woman, holding the little hand of the next embodiment of profound sprit and wisdom.
Your light is strong in your daughter and so the cycle continues.
From mother to daughter, sister to sister,
Woman to woman.
Together we are strong, loving, grace filled and eternal and build on each other’s strengths.
The time has come for us to take our rightful place in this universe.
Our life-force will change the world and the heavens and bring them back into balance.
And as it was in the beginning, the hands that rock the cradle will hold the hearts of the world and all will be at peace once more.
The change has begun.
