It is to you that we fall when we are born
And we will return to you when we die
You provide for us daily with all that we need
It is in your arms we rest while we sleep
You hold us when we are strong
You cradle us when we are weak
We tread on you day after day
Your brothers and sisters have torn into your body
They have taken from you and made you ill
But you continue to support us.
Mother Earth I reach to you with my heart
To receive your wisdom.
