The Essence of Being

Out of nothing you were called Molded by Love’s unseen hand Spirit and flesh intertwined For a purpose you are made and uniquely named Though a minute piece of the universe, you are Yet, more essential is your being
With all you are: you breathe, live and love Climb mountains, dream dreams and yes, you fall Tears flow when your heart’s broken or sad And a bright smile breaks through when Nature’s incredible beauty tugs at your heart These mark the essence of your being ~*~
