DANCE TO THE BEAT

Oh Great Spirit guide my life please
Make me the person you wish me to be
Your great love is all I need
Dance to the beat – Dance to the beat

Please make my paths smooth and clear
Watch over my loved ones that I hold dear
Provide them with everything that they need
Dance to the beat – Dance to the beat

Please bring peace to all and stir us from war
Everyone – not just far away – but also next door
Show us that all lives matter to thee
Dance to the beat – Dance to the beat

Your spirit dwells in each heart
The body and Spirit never apart
Whatever is done to us is done to thee
Dance to the beat – Dance to the beat

Oh Great Spirit as the sun sets in the sky
And the darkness of the night goes by
Please watch over us all as we sleep
Dance to the beat – Dance to the beat

Kathy,

That was so beautifully written. Kudos to you...really!

It's too bad those words could not be incorporated into the agenda of all the leaders of the world ~ and all the followers of those leaders.

What a beautiful world this could become.

The picture is absolutely awesome.

Hi JimEee - I am not sure if our God and the Indian God are the same God or not. I like to think that the Great White Spirit is our God. I know He loves all His children. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Thank you very much Peednama. I noticed your from India. I too believe God has many names from many cultures. My poem is based on the Native Americans in the United States and they always refer to The Great White Spirit as the creator - I feel He is one and the same. Thank you for your kind comments on my poems.

This poem was published in the Newark Valley Moonlighter this month. So honored when my poems are published even if it is a small town publication. However, it is distributed all over Broome and Tioga Counties in New York State. purple heart

Today was Native American Sunday in the United Methodist Church. Offerings are requested to fund Native American Ministries such as scholarships for Native Americans entering the ministry studies. So I brought my poem back for this special Sunday in my Church.
