If Only You Knew How Much ......

If only you knew how much you are loved
Through your bright days and dark
Through your clear visions
                                  And confusions
In your searching and your longing
Your homecoming
                                 Your belonging
With unwavering constancy
                                  You are loved.

If only you could feel how much you are loved
When you are held by your lover
                        Or when you are alone
When your love speaks through silences
                        Or words in your song
In your excitements and creations
                       In your quiets and frustrations
With unparalleled devotion
                       You are loved.

If only I could show you how much I love you
In ways you could hear and see and feel
And know beyond every shadow of doubt
                         With absolute certainty
That in loving you
                        I dissolve all boundaries of love
And know myself in ways
                        I have not known before.

Where the mind is without fear

Where the mind is without fear
and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been
broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out
from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches
its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason
has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father,
let my country awake

from Rabindranath Tagore’s Geetanjali

The Magic Touch of Thought

You expand and contract
In my mind
As I will

You are sometimes
The large hearted lover
Brimming with thoughtful caring

Then suddenly you diminish
Into the little mortal
Full of fear and foreboding

And just with the magic touch
Of my thought
I liberate you once again
To become
The magnificent soul
That you really are

And in so doing
I set myself free.

Stay By The Light

Keep the light within your sight
My Love
When clouds come closing in
There is no one here
Who has the key
To lead you back
Whence you came

They will call to you enticingly
Show you their wares
Give you their promises
Sell with their smart tongue
Dancers and songsters
Magicians and tricksters
Trying mightily to remember
Their own way back to love
Who will show the way
Each himself lost with no recall

Don’t stray far from the light
My Heart
Stay softly awake, alert
No longer need you lurk in shadows
Hiding from your fears

All things come fulfilled
Here by the light
And love pours out in heaps and piles
And peeps through the parting clouds
Now at last they can find their way
Each one of them will return someday

Stay by the light
My Sweet
And your love will find you
