A Poem – You Are Welcome Here

[excerpt from the movie, A Season in the Rain, available to watch here: http://aseasonintherain.com/]

Be here
See this

Be here
Hear this

You are welcome here
You are welcome here

My friends
My friends
You are welcome here

I give you my mind
And my heart

I give you my love
My respect

Be welcome
Be welcome
Be welcome my friends

Be here
See me

Be here
Hear me

You are welcome here
Like the rain from above
So soft

Life-giving

Like the strength of our mothers
And all those we love

You are welcome here

You carry the prayers
Of those who came before
You are welcome here

My friends

You are welcome here
You are welcome here
