The Realization

“Your body is away from me,
but there is a window open
from my heart to yours.”
― Rumi

You were ready for the Master
and so you left my sight.
And now if I would love you
I would be blinded by the light.

I would grope my way to paradise
if only that would do.
But there remains another way to
show my love for you.

I must leave the carnival and
sit out all alone.
There I will discover that
you were never ever gone.
The city lights are crazy and
God is not in view.
But you, my love, are with
the Lord and so I’m with Him, too.

The crowds are going crazy,
Their excitement is the norm.
And yet I sit alone in hopes
that you would once again take form.
Perhaps someone will grab me
pointing upwards to the sky
and then I’ll see you everywhere
and know you cannot die.
