Here I Am 

Here I Am 

by Carolyn Glackin 

Like blessed water flows 

So too, my soul goes

Like sparkling stars that shine

So too, do I

Like the endless tears we weep

With angels while we sleep

And laughter overheard

Among friends who need no words 

Like joy on a a summer day 

Like the heart of a child at play

And miracles that we can’t explain 

In a world that’s often full of pain 

Or the silent mystery of the sea

That rages through us peacefully 

All of these, at times are me

And still yet, there’s more 

There are parts of me I can’t explain 

Lessons I have yet to gain

Wisdom I have yet to share 

And whispering voices, always there 

Places that call out my name

Demons I have yet to tame

I’m far from perfect

But I bear no shame

For I know who I am

And I’m here to walk with each of you

To share our joys and burdens too

To heal ourselves and one another 

To regard ourselves as sister and brother 

So if you’ll have me, here I am

A loving presence with dreams and plans

And this I hope you understand 

You have my heart, now here’s my hand.
