Tonight as if in a dream
Little ones surrounded me
Dancing and singing their songs
Made me wonder where I belong

Tonight I heard someone scream
“We have him now”, it seems
They all gathered 'round to see
This spirit who needs to be free

This night they taught me to believe
To offer thanks to all living things
Water, animals and trees
The sun, the stars and thunder beings
