Reach for the Heart

wandered lonely for moments uncounted, not on the sky

 

but on this very land surrounded by thousands

 

of  worried eyes looks profiles, reflections  questions

 are you going up  to the tower? up the stairs ?

 

                        or will you enter and sit where ever you

 

 get a seat a place ? with no matter who is beside?

 

Vacant empty lost senselessly sad I stare numb

 

Dumb and mumble No, I am sure I feel secure-

 

 I know one thing  I have a song to sing

 

For a purpose for all the same, in any name

 

My heart will  beat red and only red till

 

 I may cease and  be no more so I have said-

 

The Only Power is One to reach it

 

the only sure real  way is One

 

From the heart itself , it is love pure,

 

and I have seen it in those eyes,smile, profiles

 

reflections, where it shone  in the soft smile,

 

How can I reach that love pure tender

 

speak soft grateful comforting words

 

for I could also feel  the deep swaying waves

 

of filling deepening pain brewing hurting

 

like a  growing rising burning storm-

 

I too struggled up the rough rugged path touching

 

sensing the roots branches twigs of trees-gaining

 

strength from the  branches leaves breathing tenderly

 

My destination is close for I hear the birds tweet

 

I can see the shining Light just within reach’

 

Reach out Reach out Reach out a voice seems to say

 

look up someone is waiting praying hoping -dont delay’

 

Reach out in the heart and mind with the One

 

The one and Only Feeling that is true

 

and you will see and know how love comes to you’

 

in moments of no time nor distance soon

 

nor in the sky at night or at noon

 

closer came the smile from miles miles and miles

 

if feelings are true happy and not blue in focus too

 

then dreams always come closer and true

 

for Love has power strength attraction

 

clutching pulling digging stretching roots

 

from depths and lengths far away dimishing forever

 

to stay settled  in the heart and soul-

 

Rumi finds the true emotions guides all in still motions

 

struggling swirling twirling one revolves and evolves to start

 

dancer becoming  the dance, from far away to reach the heart.

 

Distances disappear appear no more

 

hearts meet words entwine spirits are alone no more.
