This poem is called "The Invitation". It was written by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. Her first name coming to her in a dream and Mountain Dreamer given to her by a Shamanic Healer. She is not an Indian Elder nor is she an American Indian.
And it was after months of silence that I realised we make better strangers than we ever did anything else. A tough and harsh realization. but a good one to have instead of holding on to something that isn't good or meant for you.
My Life guarantee. And pass to my 2 girls. But if my life is cut short, I'll be proud of my dreams too. Memories I made plenty but My Dreams created the happiness & hope of all the other moments in all my other days.
