i looked through your eyes,
Knowing, i have Touched the Sacred Mystery, "if".
"if" i continued to look through your eyes
would i Sway with tall prairie Grasses, that Dance in the Wind
would i continue to Stand Tall; akin to the mighty Oak
would i be equally Graceful, as the Weeping Willow
would my Voice resonate with the Gentleness of the Cottonwood
would i Smile in the Sunlight, shimmering through Myriad of Treetops-
would i Know, i am a Part of the Sacred Mystery,"if"...
"if" while looking through your eyes
would i realise, all Life is Precious
would i be True to the Wisdom of my Ancestors
would i Trace their Footprints, imprinted on the Land
would i see the Signature of God, everywhere
would i endure Struggle to know Freedom-
would i Know that Creation is Borne of Sacred Mystery,"if"...
"if" after Journeying with you
would i Know that i must Look through my eyes
would i be Faithful and Cherish my Vision
would i Accept my Woundedness;
Knowing, this is the Way of Redemption
would i be Willing to Sacrifice Pleasure for Freedom; from self
would i Know that Life is a Gift; and Not a given-
would i then, Know;
Sacred Mystery is Absolute-
Never Guided, by a "would", an "if"- or an "i".
