In my meager life
The presence of God filled my every pore
With my feet planted firmly in the sand
I witnessed a sunrise on the shore

Not from the television
In a picture or the bookstore
But from the edge of the universe
I attended a sunrise on the shore

I exist now as I never thought
I could before
A miracle
Accompanied by a sunrise on the shore

In my temporary life
The permanence of God I did adore
With my footprints washing away in the sand
I watched a sunrise on the shore
