when you’re beginning a journey, an adventure,
It is good to know which path to choose
But to release expectations and open the door
To experiences and feelings unexpected.
While some trepidation and excitement are bound to occur,
Be calm, be quiet, and listen, and watch
Yourself and others, being ever vigilant, alert
To new, warmer, sweeter, feelings and smells.
I’m going with my eyes open, my ears and my nose too.
I’m going with my heart open
And I’m taking you with me.
