tell me
about the ways
in which you are human
flawed, broken, vulnerable
and all you have endured
in this thing called life

I promise
I will show you
there is beauty
in that brokenness
that makes you
more lovable in my eyes
more precious in my heart
than any illusion
of ‘perfect’
ever will

I will continue
to love you
despite your scars

I will love you
more
for them

the rebirth

Posted on Updated on

on this path of Heart
a time will come
when you will bathe
in love
oozing from
every atom
of every corner

there will be no running away
from anything
because in surrender
you will receive
what was waiting for you
what was always yours

strangers will no longer appear
to be ‘strange’
and you will begin to see yourself
in every face you meet

trees, birds, flowers, heavens
will welcome you with laughter
and you will feel yourself
pulsating with the life force
that guides
every being into action

your core will expand
in that fuzzy warmth
and you will feel
deep, pure love
overflowing for yourself,
for every atom in existence

you will begin to see
how to hurt another
only means hurting
your own self
and how a small act
of reaching out
can turn a life around

you will delight in connecting
with everything you touch
and all that enters
the realm of your senses
that have now suddenly
come alive

while experiencing ‘life’
you will often drown
in a flood of laughter and tears
only to be reborn
again and again
in those sacred moments

this experience
will engrave itself
in every cell of your body –
a remembrance
of what you had forgotten
a shedding of all
this world made you believe

after the unveiling
of the Miracle of miracles
as you come home
to yourself
no ’other’ will remain

with every breath, my love
you will now begin to feel
a mergence
with the Infinite

we all die
many times, in myriad ways
before the physical death

in the dissolution of a dream
in the passing of a loved one
at the hands of a lover

yet with each spring
life is renewed
in the same place
it collapsed
from the source
that is Eternal

I hear
the leaves dance
in the autumn wind
falling
weightlessly
as if
in a trance
gently reminding me
it is not death
that I should fear
but celebrate spring
that never fails
to keep its promise

gently
flooding
my entire being

raw light
spilling
from your eyes

the deeper
I understand myself
the more tolerant
of others
I become

to the one
who took their time
to honour life
on a sidewalk
this morning

you give me hope
in a world
that has often failed
to recognize
its own kind

the irony of love –
it leaves you
breathless
yet restores you
back to life
in the same moment
