Rock me

sundance

When I swim in the sea

the waves rock me

and I remember my grandmother

rocking me in her arms

with her special singsong hum

When divine mother Amma

embraced me 

She rocked me in her arms

and pressed her cheek against mine

whispering

My daughter, my daughter

until I cried

Watching the sun rise

I remember you

I think of you

I thank you

My God

I cry

Rock me in your arms

for the rest of my life
