the thoughts that they have told me

and because I know
the children are all singing
inside my head
when I wake up in the  morning
they tell me
that I must set them free

and because I know
the words that they are crying
in their sleep
I wake up each day
so that I might say
the thoughts that they have told me

and because I know
the children like the flowers in a garden
or the blossoms on a tree
as showy and transitory
as the grasses in the fall
as they turn over in their beds of green to turn to gold


and because I know
their stories in a small way
I have been given their words
so that they might live again
one day we will all vanish
all that will remain    will be our acts of loving kindness


and because I know
the families are in torment
I make these poems as bridges
to transfer them    from the present
to where their children are
I tell them the families     they are dancing and singing
