As God shines upon us,

We scarcely see His reflection

In our eyes,

On our skin,

Or on the dew drops

Glistening in the morning light.


When love calls to us

From within the heart of God,

We scarcely feel Her breathing

In our organs

And sinews

And bones.


When fate calls to us

From within the mind of God,

We search everywhere

To find what was

Within us

All the time.


When death calls to us

From beyond the veil

That penetrates this life,

We look everywhere

For what was within us

All the time.


When love calls to us,

The veil and the mind become one.

The lover and beloved and love

Are all that was and is and will be
