“Connected to You, Connected to Me” by Suzy Dillard


Connected to You, Connected to Me
Dedicated to
Justin Davis Armistead

Perched high atop a mountain in distant far lands, my spirit now soars wild and free,
In happiness, serenity and glee.
Soaring and exploring, I scamper about.
Free as a bird, flying over you and me.

I awake. Is this a dream?
Journey Man, oh Journey, where has thou taken me?
To what distant land have I awoken today?
I feel further than the earth, further than the sea,
Further than the birds flying over you and me.

Journey Man, oh Journey has thou come for me?
Has thou laid down my path and beckoned me home?
Has thou given me freedom to soar and roam?
Journey Man, oh Journey has thou guided me home?

I beg of you, sweet Journey, to tell me who you are-
And if you have come to take me home.

“Dear sweet Davis, I have come for you.
I have traveled wide and far,
From distant mountain tops, to the earth which you feel beneath your toes,
I have come to show you your road
To eternity, love, peace and glee.
Tis Me, dear Davis, please take my hand.”

I do not know.
I still have so much to do.
So many to love.
I can’t leave them now.
Is it really my time?

The Journey Man replied:

“I am the Sun that rises each day.
I am the Birds that flutter and play.
I am the Clouds that litter your sky.
I am. I am. And have always been near by.
I am the Dew Drops on Glistening Green Grass.
I am the Warm Breeze that caresses your sweet face.
I am.
I am.
Everything.

Just as each day the sun rises and then falls.
Just as each night the stars come and then go.
Just as each flower blooms and then falls to the ground…
Tis your time dear Davis, to be happy and free
Free from pain
Free from chains
Free you shall finally be.”

But what about my family and friends?
They grieve for my absence and yearn for my presence.
What do I tell them?

“Well sweet Davis, you tell them-
That
You are the Sun that rises each day.
You are the Birds that flutter and play.
You are the Clouds that litter their sky.
You are.
You are.
And are always near by.
You are the Dew Drops on Glistening Green Grass.
You are the Warm Breeze that caresses their sweet face.
You are the Rain Drops that give the Flowers sweet life.
You are.
You are.
Everything.
And forever you will be, connected to them, connected to me.
We are all in this great circle of life,
Connected to You, connected to Me….

Perched high atop a mountain, in distant near lands,
My spirit now soars wild and free in happiness,
Serenity and glee.

I am. I am. Everything.
And forever I will be, connected to you
And you to me.
Forever I will be, connected to You,
Connected to Me.
