Before the sun splashed bright orange
against an obsidian sky creating purple,
Before the moon and stars were placed
upon the night to give it beauty
You loved me.
The oceans had not yet begun their watery chorus
The earth was barren and without purpose
when you first cared for me.
Before god was born
Before he sent his people northward
to build great pyramids and temples,
You were my god and my temple.
You were my savior before horus or jesus,
Before moses led his people to the promised land,
You were the land that gave to me the promise of life.
