WALKING ON PETALS: NEW SONG !!

WALKING ON PETALS

Ever so soft on the balls of my feet,
Walking on petals am I.
Carefully placing my steps very neat.
Tip-toeing soft with a sigh.

It is like in a dream, walking thus as I do,
For each life form has history’s ring.
There are myriad creatures there under my shoe,
And I wonder if their life is worth anything ?

Yet my heart, oh it knows without doubt it is so.
For each being has sentient zeal.
Though it be blade of grass, doesn’t matter, you know,
They are older than me, that’s the deal !

The memory retained of one’s own history,
Helps us grow just the same every time.
And I wonder while walking on petals, you see,
Are my footsteps committing a crime ?

Though it cannot be helped, for it’s walk that I must
Maybe asking permission would be the right thing
With my soul I do say, “Please excuse me”, and trust
That I do understand your role in everything”.

Though I have certain weight and it’s upright I go,
I’m connected to earth every time I touch down.
Walking on petals, so soft and I know,
In my heart that God made it just so.

For with each blade of grass and with every seed:
All the dead leaves and live ones I’m joined.
We are cousins forever, each other we need,
I’m related each time something’s born.

Walking on petals, so soft underfoot,
Walking on petals with love in my touch.
Letting God know when I pull up a root,
I shall lovingly care for it ever so much.

I’m so bless-ed to be...
Walking on Petals.

Hi Jeffie !! Thank you so much for reading and listening !! Sometimes I feel like an elephant knowing I am probably ending the life of something just by being me, but that is the way God planned it, I suppose. I am glad that there isn't anything bigger than me that I have to dodge !!

Love always, Linner :D :) :lol: :wink:
