Song to My Soul

Remember what I said. . . .
I said, Don’t leave, for I am your Friend.
In the mirage of this world
        I am the fountain of life.
Even if you leave in anger
        and stay away for a thousand years
You will return to me,
        for I am your goal.

I said, Don’t be content with worldly promises
        for I am the tabernacle of your contentment.

I said, Do not go upon the dry land
        for I am the Sea without a shore.

I said, O bird, do not fly into the hunter’s net;
Come toward me, for I am the power
        that moves your wings,
        that lifts you through the sky.

I said, They’ll capture you and put you on ice;
        I am the fire and the warmth
        of your true yearning.

I said, They will cover you with water and clay;
        You will forget that I am your taintless beginning.

I said, No one can tell how my work will manifest
        for I create the world from all sides.

Let your heart’s light guide you to my house.
        Let your heart’s light show you that we are one.
