Hold me close, hold me tight, hold me together with all your might
Watch me long, sing your song, stay with me throughout the night
Caress my cheek, unveil my mystique, bright shine on me your light
Lay bare my soul, take care my heart, and send every fright to flight
For I belong to you belonging to me and this is our sweet sung song
In Your eyes I can dream one thousand dreams
Streaming from the subconscious of my mind
To bind me to you bound to me for all to see
And to be mesmerized forever in my endeavor
To love you as much as you love me
Above all the world’s fray as we play
And I sink into your eyes where lies my peace
Take me far above and away into another day
Along the contour of the hope-filled flyway
To stay afloat among the clouds above the fray
Where peace reins supreme over all disarray
And I will love you forever and ne’er disobey
Red hot fire burning that does not consume,
Plumes of thick smoke to heaven perfume;
You envelope my self oh-so totally naturally,
To remain any time apart from you is agony;
So come sweet lover of my life supernaturally
Do I hear your sweet nightly songs?
Am I wrapped tightly in your arms?
Did you take me mightily by force of passion?
Did you press me excitedly against your love?
Am I rightly breathing poetry for you?
Am I more than slightly pleasing to you?
Could I be more tightly bound to you than I am now?
Something in the void, in the unknown, before time, before space
Something living before life, breathing in the nothingness . . . life
Something radiant before light and dark, radiating in the emptiness
Some One before anyone, heart before hearts, soul before soul
Some One speaking in the silence before speech, Word before words
Some One loving Another, the same One, and Another One
By what Name? Tao . . . Brahman . . . Demiurge . . . Welt Geist . . . God
Unbirthed birth-giver, uncreated creator, unseen all-seeing, all and nothing
Something, Some One unapproachable approaching . . . reaching, touching
Speak not, O most foolish heart, of what you will do for you part,
From start to finish, your life is not your own, not yours to chart,
For you belong to situations and obligations and so many actions,
And sisters and brothers, fathers and mothers stake their claim,
And who’s to blame, when to their lives you too make a claim?
Ah, your life is not your own, you sit not upon your life’s throne;
Save face and give it back to the One who gave it in the first place!
I in you and you in me and no room for an ugly jealousy
Chosen from eons ago to forgo selfish self-centeredness
Pierced to my soul by eyes belying the hole in my heart
Filled by love ere asking above my self, O heavenly dove
Greater romance with you through the dance of real life
Living now in perpetual thanksgiving forgiving the past
Who could know greater deeper unity in gifted opportunity
To love ‘n be loved by you who are me in carefree guarantee
Travel, relax, unravel and heal such deep wounds you should be dead
Begin again, even in pain, take the first step, and circumvent Hell’s web
Speed through countries and continents, now cognizant and confident
For this is your time to shine, soul design, goldmine of the spirit, fine wine
Stay close to the shoreline, refine your heart, make yourself the better part
Unravel and heal in eternal travel, deepest wounds fading without evading
End of the journey just the beginning, now worthy, no longer pinning
Life infused everlastingly, without vanity, changing drastically . . . for good
Pain ever so deep and wonderful, so constant and fertile,
Longing for you to long for me for all the wrong reasons,
Thankful to feel, grateful to seal my fate with your future
To nurture this bondage of soul to soul to fill in the hole
Left from cosmic decimation of long ago indiscrimination
Of one man and his demand to be you so untrue to himself,
And have we not paid the price ever since in hard penance,
So I treasure this pain, no bane of longing to belong to you,
Only beside you, inside you, to forever abide with you . . .
Never to be you, but only true to my Self within you
