So if you wake up and you are you
Give pause to the breath you breathe
Notice the blood pumping from your heart
Before you jump into the machine

So if you wake up and you are you
Release the need for more validation
Avoid the trend of ‘there’s not enough’
And give a thought for all that is

So if you wake up to skies of blue
Give pause to the infinity of the sky
Notice the trees reaching ever up
Don’t limit life to only what you see

So if you wake up with eyes anew
Release the want of tireless toil
The past is memory, the future a thought
And lend your attention to right now

So if you wake up and you are you
Be pleased that you ‘matter’
Only you have the power to notice
Truly what a funny miracle it is
