I am now all that I am,
All that I have seen,
And all that I have been.
I am not here, wrapped in solemn shroud.
No! now I fly beyond the clouds,
I am the wind that rustles through the trees,
I am even in the gentlest breeze!
I am in the long grass that blows,
And in the sunset as it glows.
I am in the pure white snow,
And in the crops as they grow!
I am the water pure and still,
The moons white orb morning until.
Know that I am always there,
I am with you as you dare!
I am spirit earth you see,
As I from my earthly bonds break free.
As pain fades, remember me!
