Life Evergreen

Embodiment of a life evergreen,

Be the compass lit path toward my best.

I feel your soul echoing in my dream.

 

Awaken vibrancy in every gene.

Provide a solace softening my nest,

Embodiment of a life evergreen.

 

Amid bountiful harvest may I glean.

Pillow my compassion and pad my breast.

I feel your soul echoing in my dream.

 

From wisdom’s sweet drops I shall not yet wean-

Channel my hope to babes tucked at my breast,

Embodiment of a life evergreen.

 

Harken me to the song inside my queen-

Humble my heart to make me truly blest.

I feel your soul echoing in my dream.

 

May the shape of truth be forever seen.

Lead me through a life of love and sweet rest.

Embodiment of life evergreen,

I feel your soul echoing in my dream.
