I am the song 2 copyI Am The Song

©2013 Louise Gallagher

There is a song rising
in the gentle darkness of the morning
pushing away night’s blanket
it calls me to cast off my fears
let loose
my desires
riding high
upon the moonlit sky
fading into memory with dawn’s awakening.

This song calls
me to remember
my essential being
it pushes me out
beyond the edges of my comfort zone
like a mother bird
nudging her chick out of the nest
into flight
releasing the bonds
of time holding me back
from being
my most magnificent self
in the light of a brand new day
born upon the song
of day’s awakening.

I am
the song I sing
rising up
from the dark of night.
