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
