Words are a cage for the limitless expression of my Love for you.
You are the fire that burns deep inside of me,
the inner peace that I seek within every moment of breath.
Just as a flower is the overflowing blossom of the seed
Bursting out of love for the soil.
As a newborn baby that breaks away from the womb
Out of love for new life and compassion for its mother.
As a cloud crying tears of rain profusely
Out of love for all things
He wishes not to see wither.
Like a rainbow unfolding into the vast blue sky
Out of love for the sun and the rain.
As water surging forth from a spring
Out of love for all that lives in the lake.
And just like all things that sing their song of love
For that which they hold so dear,
I return to you
By your will alone
I return to your loving womb to be reborn
And this is done
Out of your love for me.
Remember me not for who I appear to be
But instead for who I aspire to be.
Whenever I appear absent from your sight
Know that I am;
Where the cool breeze kisses the mountain tops
Gazing upon the endless sea of clouds.
I am where the morning sun warmly embraces the petals of a flower in full bloom.
Whenever I appear so far away from reach
Know that I am
Dancing inside the teardrops of laughter
Falling from a child’s eyes.
I am the breath passing through the lungs
That’s transformed into one voice of the multitudes singing out to all that is Love.
The wag in every tail and the leap, skip, jump of every living creature in this vast universe.
Whenever I appear to be gone forever
Know that I am,
The ocean of darkness embraced by silence where the seedlings of peace first sprout.
The divine mother’s warm embrace;
the lunar white tusk that hangs in the evening sky.
I am the deep oceans hypnotic ebbing tide reflecting the setting sun’s glow.
Where the mind stretches beyond the cage of time and existence
In that first, living present moment,
you see the Grand Canyon at sunrise.
In that very moment
Know that I am
There with you
