The here and now is where I sit;
the perfect place to rest a bit.
A place where trouble can’t get in;
there is no Sainthood – there’s no sin.
A place where thoughts can pass me by;
I watch them with dispassionate eye
as freed from fears both old and new
I can just ‘be’ instead of do.
This is a place to take some rest;
a refuge from life’s daily test.
A Mindful place, to simply be
the person who is really me.
