All at Once

All at once
When you ask
what do I need

there is no confusion
No second guessing
You know.
Food, shelter, medicine
Family to be safe
Country to be healed
That is it.

It was always true
But now, you know it
You know it like you know
The smell of spring or the taste of winter
You know it, like you know, the sky is blue
Or the way your grandma’s house smells
And you will always know it
From here on out


The Love of your life
Means love for my life
For the green things
that will soon sprout
For Robin who sings
And geese coming north
For the homeless, the weak and the strong And those with mansions
You have learned
We are all connected
On this blue beautiful earth
you’ll never be able to forget
And that is a gift, if you can live
With it
