The Beloved’s Call

I’ve been waiting for you for lifetimes to come to me.
I’ve watched you in pain and suffering, in agony.

Let me show you exquisite ecstasy.
Let me lift you to heights unknown.
Fly with me into new realities.
Come to me.

I am your heart, your soul, your spirit.
Come dance with me.
Come to me.

You’ve heard me in the roar of ocean waves.
You’ve seen me in that lake serene.
I am your one eternal candle flame.
Come to me.

I wait.
I wait.
When you forget to remember,
I wait.
With wings to enfold you,
I wait.

My love will burn forever bright for you.
How long must I wait?
I need you and you need me.
I bask in the freedom of our mastery.
Come to me.

I wait.
I wait.
When you forget to remember
I wait.
With wings to enfold you
I wait.

I wrote this poem during my three-year Dark Night of the Soul, the most difficult periods of my life.
