Listen to the wind
it will tell you what to do
Listen to the ocean
It may confuse you
Listen to the call of the child’s voice
Listen as the birds call out another choice
Listen the earth going through the seasons
Listen to the stars they’ll share their reasons

Wake up Adam
Your rib might be gone
And she gave you
A new song
Wake up, wake up Adam

Pitter, patter
Drip, drop
Lapping, swaying
This is what you’ve got
Whisper, sigh
Breathe, inhale
This is life is yours
Now live your tale.
