While the morning sun is rising,
I rustle from my slumber.
Once more, I had a frightening dream.
Perhaps time will not pass as slowly today.
My prayers for an inner peace
might be answered with love.
Every moment I ask for wisdom.
I hope my hours will be pure and true.
Life is simpler without that obsession.
Perhaps I can walk this day
up the hillside of progress.
I lift my eyes to see the birds.
When the setting sun goes down,
I feel the world slowly spin away.
I just had another successful day in paradise.
