I Remember

Tears are flowing
I am breaking apart
The love in my heart
Is too big to contain

Because I remember
Why I came here
I remember
I remember

My true purpose
Realized in a song
Reaching down deep
Into long ago
Because I had forgotten

But your song
Reminded me
Of the one who Awakened
From our terrible nightmare
To free us all
From our sleep of darkness

Because I remember
Why we came here
I remember
I remember

Because of your song
I remember our purpose
Why we are here
No ordinary reason
Here for a purpose
To realize who we are

Infinite radiance
Appearing in this world
A man of light walked on this Earth
And he is here now
Holding out his hand to you
He showed you the illusion of death
And the reality of Life and Light
That lasts forever

Pure, indescribable, irrational, all encompassing
Love
Selfless, unconditional, irrevocable,
Love

Because I remember
Why we came here
I remember
I remember
The presence is still here
of the one from long ago
Many speak about him
But they do not know him
Because they speak as if he is not here
They see him only in their minds

But I remember
Why we came here
I remember
I remember

Because of your song
I remember a long time ago
Someone who did something that no one else dared
He dared to love so much
That he couldn’t bear the thought
Of our suffering a moment longer
And so he went where no one else went
To find the truth
So we don’t have to be confused
Anymore

I’m so glad that I remember
Why we came here
I remember
I remember
