It happened again last night…
You came to me, suddenly, silently,
Not seen, but felt –
Surging in like the tide,
Pulling me softly into you…
A living ocean
Pouring through me
Caressing every cell of my body
Like a million lover’s tongues…
You hum and all of Life takes up the tune,
You dance and the universe dances with you.
“What’s the name of this song?” I ask.
“Free will,” you reply.
You show me cosmic wonders, and beauty beyond description,
And say, “These are your own reflections.”
Then you show me all my deepest greed and shame,
Like a pit opening up beneath me, black and foul,
I feel my wings falter…
I panic – you laugh.
“Fall,” you say.
“There is nothing to fear.”
So I plummet down into the howling depths of darkness,
And there you are!
Wearing a sly and wicked grin.
You are everywhere, both inside and outside,
My mind cannot contain it.
Like a chrysalis, I swell and burst –
And you emerge!
Beloved, I will never tire of this game!
Come to me again tonight –
You know the place where I will wait.
When the darkest hour of the night
Finds me alone and listening
To the yawing of the wind in the trees –
Come to me again.
Call me by my secret name,
The one that only lovers know.
Come to me again tonight,
Come, come again…
