Day by day, I look into your eyes,
They freeze, they melt, my ego they terrorize,
I smile at their softness,
I swoon at their depth,
When will I see them?

Face to face,
Breath to Breath?

Do I seek you in the Mountains?
Do I seek you in the Seas?
In the Caves, in the Cities?
In the Ocean that is Me?

Where are you my love?
My ancient and future destiny…

With you I feel death is another form of love,
For only then I feel as though I can merge,
In between spaces,
Through realms unseen.

My love swirls into your Being,
Like Smoke from a Dream.

But no – you’ve different plans for me,
In the game of Formless Hide and Seek,
The only death of mine you’ll bear is an Ego tumbling down to its feet,
Will it be then – that we finally meet?

That my fingers can feel the warmth of your cheek?
Or the sound of your living beat?

Will it be a day when, I unawares,
Turn a corner and Find You –
There you Stand,
In Flesh in Blood,

The Dream as Form?

My Man.

Will you pull me close,
in the space between breath,
Between Love, Life, Purpose and Death?

Will you whisper through my Body,
The Sweet words of my Longing…

I’m here.
At last, my love.

    I came across this poem today on Dr. Bairavee Balasubramaniams site. It is so lovely and resonate, I just had to share….
    like my comment says, my ego hasn’t read it yet! The divine essence loves it!
