Submerse me in beauty

submerse me in beauty

Submerse me in beauty


Submerse me in beauty

and let my eyes see

Awaken me to the exquisite,

the forgotten and the unseen.

Arrest me with the truly important, and let me


Let me find rest under the shade

of the trees I plant,

and learn the fragrance of each rose.

That I might know the gift

of life fulfilled and love lived loud,

Lead me to appreciate

all that is true, all that is good,

and all that is you.
