I cried thru the song
with habit ready to shut down my hurting heart again.
instead , what came to me in this gazillionth
feeling of loss
pushed me to know what is true about love .
yes, you and family and friends
have come ,shared time with me, and gone
some naturally , some tragically ripped away
both leaving me feeling bereft
and then there was this song , sung with such fullness of heart
that I knew that what really matters about love is to be able to experience the potentials of loving
to experience it at ever more refined levels.
it is not meant to fill the space that we must fill for ourselves
that is a temporary fix ,
a using of another’s supply when our own supply we already have
our own love, from the source of love ,
is ever in flow, ever evolving
when the fires of love within our hearts stir
to light up from our own connection to its source ,
its essence seeps into the cracks of the stone cold
walls that now separate us from life
to heal the wounds of humanness
and lift us to breathe it in like pure air.
we emerge from the shedding skins of yesterday
nurturing all life and wanting nothing more
than to b the vessel for this change .
