From Whence I Come

I come from the dust of the earth,
From the thunder, lightening and rain,
I come from anguish and pain,
From struggles and torment,
I come from burdens carried through the darkness,
Bound by heavy chains,
I come from sunshine,
And cool breezes in the night,
I come from the smell of lavender,
Of freshly cut grass and honeysuckle,
I come from the moon,
And the stars that sparkle,
I come from waves of the ocean,
Washing in on the coast,
I come from the bird’s song,
Serenading the earth,
I come from spirit torn and freedom won,
I come from the smile of a child,
With a sparkle in her eye,
I come from joy in the heart,
And from peace in the soul,
I come from the love of a man,
And from integrity and grace,
I come from faith and hope,
From gentleness and self control,
I come from power in my times of weakness.
I come from the Creator of all.
