You came to me this morning and as the day was dawning,
The wondrous sights to see, the feeling on this earth of being me.
No-one can ever really understand, the feelings deep inside,
I speak the words, I do explain, my whole being I open wide.
To leave myself so open, to try let others understand,
I do my best to help them and take them by the hand.
To feel the things that I do, to understand the life,
To keep myself upon the earth, a friend, a mother and a wife.
My heart is bursting open, don’t you get it? Can’t you see?
That all of this is available, not only just to me.
So take one step, along the path, as I ask you now to come,
Take the first step of what I now know,
along the path that leads to Freedom!
