This One Thing I Ask of Love

This one thing I ask of Love:
Lead me to a place I can be True.

Can I pretend I do not know what I now know?
And do not see what I now see?
Can I live this life in the in-between?

Can I let go of my desire for Truth?
or I walk away from Love?

No, I can do neither..
my Being is designed to search out,
find and reflect, both Love and Truth.

Today I must find peace with the argument
between body, mind, heart
until one day they can agree.

My own mind is no guide,
and my own strength cannot lead me,
my heart may deceive me…

Only Love, the Lover of my Soul,
knows the Way to that place…

So I will wait in peace for this One Thing.

No Longer in the Safe Space

I can no longer live in the safe space, it is not safe at all.

It was only Fear that trapped me there and tricked me into staying

With steady dripping words of terror in my ear

Covering my eyes and turning everything to grey

But then Love came and stopped me in my fumbling

To sit me down and lift the blindfold…

For a time I was vulnerable to the intensity of Life

I needed shielding as my eyes adjusted to the Light…

So Love found a quieter place and led me there

And as I walked away the shadows shouted at my back

and clutched at any part of me that they could reach.

But Love looked into my eyes all the way deep to my soul

And I saw the shadows were nothing in the Light of Love.

They came from a small and shrinking place,

that one day would be gone forever, only ever in the mind.

While I believed in Fear I could be afraid,

with the world my enemy, and I no match for it.

Now I believe in Love and I am Beloved,

And the universe is my delight.

I Have Found The Way

I have found the way Dear One, come and join me!

Leave what you know behind it has nothing more for you

It has brought you to the edge of darkness

Now step into the light

I weep for you in the darkness, in the nightmare

Tears run down my face… If only you would wake

I know you cannot see, but can you hear me calling?

Somewhere in the distance.. Can you hear?

Can you feel me trying to wake you up?

This is Love Dear One, this is Love

There is Life and Love on the other side

I have found the way…

Love Found Me

Love found me,

In a dream my Love found me…

but there was no room in that dream

for us to be together, to sit even awhile,

or know each other, so I left the dream

and called for Love to follow –

Then suddenly I woke up,

and I thought

my Love was gone.

I wept for my Love

for the Love in my dream…

and I tried to go back to sleep

closing my eyes as the tears fell…

When he found me I saw in his eyes

that he KNEW he had found me.

As I laughed with my friends he watched me,

I flittered about the room full of people and noise,

and he followed me, until he was close enough to reach me

to reach out, pull me to himself, and whisper in my ear…

and as he did, in that moment I knew:

I had been waiting for my Love, and this was He,

and running from my Love, and this was He.

All I knew about myself changed in that embrace.

But now the noise was too loud and the people too many,

and I could not hear any words my Love spoke to me in that place,

I longed to share all the secrets of myself so he would know me…

So I ran off, and called him to follow, and our fingers touched

on and off as we weaved through the crowd…

My friends called to me to stop and chat and sit with them,

they reached out to grab me to keep me there –

but I laughed and smiled and waved, and blew them kisses as I ran…

I knew my friends from before, I did not know my Love.

I must know him now or I would never know myself –

I called to him to follow, I knew he would, and he did.

We found a place where there were no people

but it was strewn with litter everywhere and broken glass –

there was no place to sit, so I started to clear a space for us…

But as I did that my hands became covered in dirt and my legs were scratched.

I tried to clean the dirt from my legs and hands so I could be with my Love and touch his face

as I washed myself he watched me fretting in my anxious need to be with him…

I could hear the people coming, we had no time left – I was panicking…

they broke through the door – their hearts were happy to find me

but my heart broke. As they surrounded me

I looked to see his face…

Would I ever know my Love?

Then I woke.

I woke and wept for my Love,

There had only been that one embrace,

and the touch of our fingers through the crowd.

In my dream there was no place for us…

As I left my dream I called for Love to follow,

and it was Love that woke me up.
