Poem: Buddha in me

Sometimes I see the Buddha in me a phrase, a touch, something I see

It touches my heart And awakens in me A memory of how to be free A memory of how to be me

There’s a time the Buddha in me Comes to surface As if to say Remember, life will pass you by If you forget to stay alive In this moment In this place

There’s a time The Buddha in me Comes to the surface As if to see

If I remember
