In those special times
Have I not been like a blade of grass moving and bending gently in the breeze?
In those times when my ego was being bruised I still tried to please
Did I not try to make acceptance for my imperfections
Was I not happy to follow all your directions?
Did I not close my eyes and hold my tongue?
So as not to express any judgement when they were doing me wrong
Did I not try to look the other way with unseen tears in my eyes?
When truly it was only the Spirit that could hear my silent cries
As others laughed and ignored my shadow on the wall
In those times did I not try to walk with my head high and tall?
Did I not try to ignore the whispering of my name a thousand fold?
How alone I felt as if I were standing outside in the cold
Weaving your web to hold me down
I smiled with a mask the frown of a clown
I hid myself beneath the cloak of the night so that you could not see
How I long to be loved and long to set myself free
In my realization, my error was to focus on them and their actions
When I should have been more aware of my own re-actions
I thank you all for the opportunity that you have given me
As I travel forward on the spiritual life journey.
Somewhere deep inside my heart, within a cloak of mist
A most amazing and wondrous old Friend resides and exists
I see Him standing beneath a crystal astral dome
Whispering softly to me to return to my heavenly home
The fragrant breeze moves as My Lord opens my door
Speechless in my silver silence as I enter the golden core
How beautiful He looks adorned with a flowering crown
Dressed in a silken white vibrant flowing gown
My Beloved the exuberant essence of Your Love is Divine
Your sparkling celestial eyes gaze intensely into mine
Let my enlighten soul emerge and rise higher
To live in Your Presence is my goal and my desire
