Middle-of-the-Night Words and Melodies

Oftentimes, lyrics and melodies awaken me in the middle of the night, and then play over and over in my mind until I let them out. This past week, a distinct vocal riff of C-D-E-E with the words "May I be love" was haunting me. And this is what it became - my Thanksgiving week mantra set to music. Actually, it may pertinent for any day. Or better yet, maybe every day...as a reminder to live mindfully in gratitude, acting from that place of Love.

May I be love, 
May my soul shine its light 
Even in the hardest days,  
The darkest nights. 
May I know peace  
As my own 
On this journey home. 

May I feel grace, 
May I know that I am One 
In this corner of creation, 
We are greater than our sum. 
May we live each day 
With a song of thanks 
For this journey home. 

May I see through the brokenness - 
Be part of the blessing just beyond. 
May I reach through fear, 
And offer a refuge from the storm. 

May I be love, 
May my soul shine its light 
Even in the darkest days, 
The hardest nights. 
May I speak Truth - 
The Truth that sets us free 
To be the best of what we came here to be. 

May we live each day 
With a song of thanks 
For this journey home. 
May we live each day 
With a song of thanks 
For this journey home.
