To see, and not know what
We are so terribly seeking,
What profound simplicity
There can be between the eyes
That are gazing and the world,
The gazed upon, the beloved,
If we let it. If we let it be.
What a pure, unfettered love
It can be, this relationship
Between we who want to know,
And the eternally, sagely known.
Let us forego the violence
Of our need to cast ourselves aside
To be in the arms of love.
Let us instead turn the gaze inward,
Unflinching, even when it hurts,
And throw so much love here
That we cannot help but come awake,
Trembling, excited, for we are here,
In the exact way we need to be,
And we have welcomed ourselves,
So we are finally free.
