Speak Or Spell

There were times
when I woke up
with my mind made up
and a burning flame
in my heart,
eager to reach you
with all these things
which I never spoke of
to you,
my all-time love.

And if it's about speaking
or about spelling,
may heart day by day
oh, it is dwelling,
for my Soul has always
been seeking
for the sign of at-one-ment.

How could I tell you
everything
by saying nothing?

You are the Mirror
of my fears,
the shining star that
lights my way,
but I helplessly go astray
because of the terror
to have you near.

And if by following
my heart,
I open myself to your
charms,
what kind of harm
would be there?
It will be just the start
of the unwrapping of my
True Being...

For it has been
only now
that I left myself
be consumed by this flame
that bears your name,
my fears have fled
they can't be seen,
this blind man can
see clearly now,
I had to let you know,
My all-time Love.
