I Choose Again
I watched the Sun setting.
The splendor changed to a lonely darkness,
The beauty was gone.
I embraced your radiance.
In a twinkling,
The warmth between us froze into ice.
If only Love could

To be released from the past,
I used the sword
of truth to cut through the old ties.
Now I stand Consciously
in the light.
All my dreams feel like smoke dissolving
Into a clear blue sky.
I sob gratefully that
You are the most precious gift to me.
Letting me touch my deepest sorrow,
Which is a gateway to Illumination.
Understanding we are not what we feel,
Not what we think,
