I’ve written you this note,
to ask for some insight into you and me
and how we’ve chosen
to interconnect in this life.
Our perceptions of each other
are all illusions
because the parts you see in me
are reflections of your own spirit
and vice versa.
We are only vehicles in a grand plan
traveling down the same path
at this particular juncture.
Don’t promise me things for tomorrow.
I only want assurance in this moment.
We are not responsible for the untold future,
or the burden to fill each others needs.
Ask me to sing along to the songs in your heart
but don’t expect harmonious perfection
since we are not morphed into one.
We are the union of two—
not one divided into halves.
Show me your love,
not necessarily in words,
but with a touch of your fingertips on my cheek,
or the break of a smile whenever we meet again,
or a gentle glance that says,
“There you are!
I’ve been waiting for you to arrive.”
Don’t tell me about your horrible past,
I wasn’t part of that life.
Why go to places that I didn’t witness
or try to force a break in my perception
of us now that we are fully experienced
in falling and ascending into greater beings?
Your past brought you here to me.
Don’t demand to know my history,
it is better to know the me of now.
I am the sum of all my experiences
and that’s all that matters.
Take me by the hand and show me your tributes
and how you conquered the demons
who lost their battle
because your kindness and faith
could never be jeopardized.
Tell me of your joys, belief, dreams,
that are waiting to be shared,
so compassion and love
can take you by the hand
to assure you that I am here right now
with you to partake in. I will stay.
My running shoes have finally been recycled—
I am not going anywhere.
Can you also sit next to me in silence
without guilt or remorse
and eventually shout, “I find truth in my life.
I want to share it with you!”
Tell me something that truly exists
so I can dive into you
learning the mysteries of your spirit.
And, when I share mine please
don’t criticize or judge the words
that exit my soul.
I don’t want to know how you got here,
just that you are in the present with me.
Can you withstand this truth
and live with yourself
without needing to change me?
let’s share our divinity
and authentic selves in this journey.
and find the path of least resistance
to the place where only love
You will never have to be brave alone
because I am here
courageously waiting on you.
