For My Beloved

Today I wrote this to the woman I love…

Hafiz might say
that when a heart
chooses grace and beauty and strength-
i.e. chooses to be Itself-
then all the world is blessed
and that heart discovers
that all hearts dwell within Itself.

You have blessed me
with your love and wisdom
and compassion.

You have wounded me
with purity and truth,
and now I am dying
into your Love.

Everything that is
now knows this secret:
we are one Inseparability.

This is the greatest gift
we have
ever been given.
