One Day I Will Become

One day Earth you will take me in
I’ll fall to pieces and flow away

I’ll become a cloud that traverses the sky
I once walked beneath

I’ll become a tree supporting a child’s dreams
and whimsical adventures

I’ll become a bird skimming the trees
watched by my children

I’ll become the soil that sustains and nourishes
thirsting flowers

I’ll be in the air you breath swirling in the wind
circling around you

One day Earth I will go into you quietly
I will dissolve away without a sound

But for now dear Earth I’ll walk your paths,
lay under your Sun caressed by the wind and grass

And enjoy the transformation of everything that
came before I settled as a human being

One Day I Will Become

Artist's Description

A poem that appeared as I pondered the clouds. And imaged myself zipping through space on my space ship Earth.
