When I Woke

When I woke today

Everything had changed

Yet the sun still rose

Without confusion

The birds still sang

Their ancestors’ songs

The melody is here

A timeless pattern

Deeper than memory

My bags are packed

Goodbyes all said

Tears shed

Going to sing my song

In another town

With a different drum

The beat goes on

And the sun will rise


And the day after that

With more clarity

So I pray

Grant us grace

Bless our journeys.
