really love to sit upon my seat

and contemplate my mind

taming my emotions is a treat

never know what I could find

 

contemplate my state of mind

breathe naturally and let love seep

dig deep to see what I can find

busy thoughts are bound to creep

 

breathe naturally so love can seep

focus on my breath to calm

busy thoughts wanting to creep

still my busyness that can harm

 

focus on my breath does calm

taming erratic emotions is a treat

still all busyness that might harm

really love just sitting on my seat!
