You are the far unreachable star
melting my heart with one desire
to be there, to reach to you
be part of the selected few
My day is lit with your presence
my night is just your omnipresence
that is the time where my dreams
meet your name as it seems
In the darkest moments of my life
i could see you and be fine
to be there will take time
for now, to see you is sublime
Sparkling lights are your eyes
their depth is truly a work of art
your beauty matches your heart
you are the star… among the stars!
Oh Earth, How you’ve been Misused!
Taken for Granted, Undervalued, Abused
Both Pleasure and Pain I’ve Given and Taken
Your Symbiotic, Humble Nature completely Mis-taken
Positive Reverberation you Could Not Provide
When to Gratitude, Balance & Harmony I Died
It was I who took away all your Beauty
Oh Mother you have Given So Freely!
The Color of Love is the Signiture of You
So much Green you have given for us to Bloom
Did we turn Green into Greed and undervalue Truth?
I Vow from now to Care and have Respect for You too!
To much of this life has been lived unconscious
Have I been present to witness it’s fullness?
Constant chatter, distractions galore
Mindless matters, & looking for more
Skipping from one automatic half-hearted action to the next
Missing the timeless exchanges, connections and contexts
Only when Silent does the debris start to clear….
Only when I Listen can the wisdom appear
How much of the worlds problems would be solved
If we suddenly became mute and had to evolve?!?
We always want to Find, Love of the Perfect kind
Someone, Something to Fill Up the Space Inside
We hope and search and pray it will arrive SomeDay
The Perfect Love that will Dissolve our problems away
We look to God, each other, our friends, our brothers
At the end of the day, we understand….
The only love we ever know is the Love we hold in Our Hands
So I’m writing a love poem for myself today
In this way, I can Care, I can Share it with you
Take a moment, take a minute, Feel the expanse of your existence
It can’t be put in a bottle or saved for tomorrow, so Use It for Yourself
Deep inside, Let the Love Arise and Spill out on ALL sides
Needless to say, Love is Needless
Generous hearts Give Love Away
They are full from the giving, the giving, the giving
Love is Only from the Inside; Fill up, Let it shine
It was always there…. waiting for us to Feel it
It is always there… waiting for us to Share it
So, I’m making a promise to myself today
to nurture This Heart and Play this part- par excellence.
