Let me see with the eyes of an owl
and hear like an elephant,
fly with the ever soaring eagle
with no voice to scream, that I can’t.

Let me see details with the eyes of a painter
and may I hear with both ears, musical,
can I please be the one to touch passionately
sharing why my heart’s so full.

Let me love with the heart of a mother
may my eyes reflect light from above,
blind me to the differences of another
so that I may truly glimpse love.

Give me enough blame to stay humble
and enough shame to cause me to cry,
remind me with just enough illness
that life’s too short, before I die.

Teach me the lesson of wonder
allow basking in the rays of a song,
invest into me life’s knowledge
let the weak, and the meek end up strong.

Then, let me have the role of…”teacher”
perpetuating my only goal,
to cultivate the brightest reflections
that exists, in everyone’s soul.
