i am

i have been seen at last, known
and guided unerringly ashore
by the truest light of being

i have been touched by joy,
embraced by the finest peace
floating in the harmony of her

i have shed my years and become,
inspired by the dearest of souls
listening to our endless sighs

i am, and in this i finally know
so very much of life, of love
of home and hope and song

in this light i am known at last,
and in being known and loved
i am, and so is my life complete
