I Am

By Ruth Calder Murphy (Arciemme)

Aria - the Song of Everything By Ruth Calder Murphy (Arciemme)

I’m the whisper of the wind in the Autumn trees,

I’m the lone blackbird singing before dawn,

I’m the exhilaration at the top of mountains

and the tranquility of meadows in Summer.

I’m the depths of oceans

and the heights of stars,

the brilliance of sunbeams

and the totality of midnight dark.

I’m the voice of Mother, the embrace of Sister,

the smile of Father, the companionship of Brother.

I’m music and moonshine, colour and shadow

and the caress of the seasons slipping by.

I’m mystery.

I’m the flame beneath the phoenix and the wings

of the new-born butterfly;

I’m the question and the answer - the where and how and why.

I’m in the eyes of strangers and the touch of a friend.

I’m living and dying,

beginning and end.
