My First Time On Earth


this is my first time on earth

and i give praise

for every different life form who is at home here today

there are as many reasons as craters on earthís moon

to know this is the place to be this afternoon

thereís no juniper on jupiter... no san francisco bay

iím still working with these languages... so its difficult to say

but i made a list of things to do... with only one thing on it

to tell you ďi love youĒ

this is my first time on earth

and i am blessed that you are here with me


i tried to write down every word i read

to record every bird i heard to play it back again

but i donít know how many nights there are

and i just want to appreciate this new view of the stars

someone once said "this whole life is just a dream"

i wrote that part down... but itís also in my memory

now i donít know for sure what is dream and what is real

but iím certain it has meaning if itís something i can feel

so i made a list of things to do... with only one thing on it

to tell you ďi love youĒ

this is my first time on earth

and i am blessed that you are here with me
