She walks among us, taking sips of the sweet breeze,
savoring the aromas of the meadow brushing her knees
As she wanders from grassy plain to a winter roost
Trying to find the right soil before she takes root.
It isn’t a matter of riches or splendor that beg her to seek
A home where she can rest if she ever grows weak,
A place she can feel as free as the birds above
where there is nothing but unconditional love.
As she was born to be among the flowering cherry trees,
the dandelions, the ferns and the sweetest honeybees,
her soul begs to dance with the flowers as they sway,
to glide with the wind, every which way.
Her destiny is where she ends up with the brightest smile,
where there is no doubt it was worth her while.
