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. 
SONG OF THANKS - by Amber Norgaard

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.
