Its Claim

certainty be an ever present variable of change
what lies ahead has many a term and many a name
what with certainty can one with heart and mind proclaim
be it that the breath present bears life its claim
the heart in its pulsing passion sounds its plea
this breath of life, the gift of time on to thee
savor the ebb and flow of life and spirit within
hear the rhythmic beat beyond the oppressive din
heed well the sounding glory sacred and divine
hold in revered celebration life's gift of pulsing time.
