Before I Die

Before I die, I’d like to make it to mars, but I’d settle for a desert where I can look at the stars.

I would gaze into the sky, count their twinkles one by one, going on living until I was done.

God is the universe, there isn’t no other, it’s your mother and father and sister and brother.

It’s the biggest of planets and smallest of grains; it’s the heat and the cold and the winds and the rains.

It’s the animals and the fish and snow on the mountains; it’s the grass in the park and sunlight in fountains.

It’s the tail of a comet and the rings in the tree; it’s those been and gone and it’s you and it’s me.
