wedding us together –
chaste memories
tainted with love

cloaked in humility
from the spectrum of my thoughts
to lining of feelings
I lie at your altar
imbued in your Presence

the cool morning breeze
slowly unfolds secrets
what my heart cannot fathom
these tiny eyes cannot suffice

still the breeze
hums softly
over my ears
and I hear every atom
every particle in existence
each heart beating with the same vibration

I close my eyes
and see a universe whirling inside
wherever I travel – inside, outside
I find myself coming home
even when I think I am going away
I wake up to a union in separation

once I was sane and knowing
now with a heart swollen in gratitude
reduced to nothingness at your feet
little by little
I am remembering everything

dearest Divine
help us, guide us, bless us
in your ever flowing love
in your eternal light
may what we do
only brings us closer to you

now that you have brought us this far
hold our hand and show us the way
clear our path to you
please don’t lead us astray

help us realize our gift
fuel our inner flame
with your holy name
help us remember our purpose
and why we came

make this purifying experience
easier on us
on our souls, on our worldly existence
polish us
enlighten us
so leaving only good behind
we do more than our empty words
could ever express

may all those who pass by
be blessed with the clarity
choosing the right from the wrong
they are led
to where they belong

if you are in our humble hearts
your essence blends
in the speech that flows
and the transcending spirit
branching upwards
unceasingly glows

with a heart full of gratitude
I only ask of you
to keep us close
quieten our minds
so you, my Beloved
can be the overflow

ask from the dark clouds
or the flaming hearth
of endless nights spent
in waking eyes
that knew
neither rest
nor sleep

ask from the tears
that were too tired
to be wept
from the lips that bled
unutterable words
in sweet pain
of longing

all seeking
in unison
a window
a door
to reach you,
to enter
your perfumed garden
only to find
one full moon night
as if it were a dream
as if I needed to be pinched
in that fleeting moment
when I saw
you closing the window
me inside
with you
me inside
with the beauty unseen
with the timeless truth
giving me a dose
of intoxication
that will take
a few lifetimes to recover
that will take
more than
a few lifetimes
to recover

Beloved
let me stay with you
for a little longer

the veil has uplifted
and the mist has dissolved
it is in you
I wish to be lost

nurtured by sacred tears
the stillness within me
blooms
a silent collapse
from skin to soul
a quiet dip
in the ocean
of gratitude

I no longer remain me
when I am with you
stripped from time
in the place I belong
Beloved, there is no better taste
for which I have longed

my wings bud in ecstasy
and spirit surges
as every step I take
towards you
dissolves in your fragrance
and merges

let me run wild
through illumined fields
of eternal spring
and pure delight

consume me
make me whole
in this holy flight
of the soul

even after hours
of being one with the wind
you see, I lie only exalted
bathed in your Light

Beloved
let me stay content
for a little while

don’t you know
in a love like this
death is sweeter
than separation

love beckons

Posted on Updated on

your dusky glow brings me near
your persistent lingering, even closer
ever since I have found this bliss
ever since I have known you
I haven’t gone back
I only made appearances

in what I hold most sacred
my heart, my flesh
my soul, my worth
you are everywhere I see

don’t acccuse me of loving you so –
how am I to exist
when all I feed on is your light
how am I to breathe
when its your breath that fills my air

don’t let me yearn
for just a brush of you
let me dissolve in you and die
make me that part of you
that can never be separated .. ever again
