When singing your song of triumph
Of happiness and complacency
When your senses are filled with an abundance of delights
And the days are yours for the taking
Will you remember then
That the time of your just-passing-through will arrive?
Will you then pack the abundance-of-your-delights
And take them with you?
When within the swaying pendulum of space and time
You find yourself a companion of darkness and despair
Forgotten then will be the song of your triumph
your summer days of laughter and delight
Forgotten the gifts inherent in the treasures of mortal life
Will you remember then that you’re just-passing-through
And that your earthly time-of-being
Is short and precious and not to be squandered?
What purpose, your solitary tears and dark nights of aloneness
Which cast gray, shadowed days with intermittent sunlit paths?
Are not these, the jewels in your thorny crown
Which fortify your essence
And ripen the seeds of your possibilities?
Are they not the mortar binding your journeys into Time
Where your warrior’s grit, chisels through obstacles of stone
Within the time bound cellular structure of your opportunities?
When within the darkness of the matter-bound shadow of your Being
You reach the ending of your days
Longings-of-remembrance for the Transcendent-Ocean-of-Home
Begin to beckon with a heartbeat full of Joy
Knowing The Oneness-of-Starlit-Beings await your coming-of-return
With Open Arms and Unconditional Love
Bittersweet, the poignant sadness in the foretaste of an earthly goodbye
It was but a dream, full of the moving wonders of earth, sea and sky.
