The Last Step

      Hoffman

 

She climbed the biggest mountain of her life

Found herself sitting there legs crossed eyes closed, breathing

So she sat down facing herself, sees her eyes open lips moving, hears her voice say

 

The last step was the easiest though it seemed to cover all of the ground

Between the place where you started and the place you turned around to see yourself

Climbing up the mountain, to find yourself sitting there legs crossed eyes closed, breathing

 

It is as if her heart was singing, finally, her very own song

As if her toes were beaconing, hips and shoulders dance along

With spirit inspiring, deep and long

As if her soul was dancing. Like a Sufi on the lawn and on and on and on and on

 

She’s dancing round in circles, stripping off her armor

She doesn’t need it anymore, she’s strong enough without

She says I’d like to ask a question, as long as we are here

Something from a song someone once sang into my ear

 

Can I see you, can you see through to me, will I know you, will you know me too

 

The last step was the easiest though it seemed to cover all of the ground

Between the place where you started and the place you turned around to see yourself

Climbing up the mountain, to find yourself sitting there legs crossed eyes closed, breathing

 

It is as if her heart was singing, finally, her very own song

As if her toes were beaconing, hips and shoulders dance along

With spirit inspiring, deep and long

As if her soul was dancing. Like a Sufi on the lawn and on and on and on and on

And on and on and on and on
