Each of Us Will Die One Day

Each of us will die one day.

It doesn’t matter.


More important is to practice living --


Still all that does not serve

our truest becoming.


Listen to the music of the universe

inviting us to begin

the dance that is ours alone.


The Beloved has been waiting

     from before time

     for our first step,

     for our next step.


No matter our age,

our life is new in this moment.  

     Let us dance.
