In "The Prophet", Kahlil Gibran speaks of Love. He speaks of answering the call of Love to be enraptured... and also, destroyed - so that we may know the secrets of our heart. He speaks of Love, that we...
"melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips."
May we surrender to all of Love and face it with an open heart - no matter the course of our journey...
Raindrops fall on the hot tin roof,
summer heat makes my skin cry too
My body waits for you, and my heart waits for you
And the heartache is too much for me to take, so I drown in its sea
And the heartache keeps breaking part my bones, as I churn, I churn in its sea
Noontime sun burns my brow.
Been here before just didn’t think it was now.
I’m looking for a how,
but I’m praying for a wow.
And the heartache keeps rolling over me like a wave crashing against my Soul
And I feel old memories and pains release, release their hold
With all of my Love, with all of my Heart, with all of my Peace, with all my Light
My Heart cries out for me and you –
into the dance of what we know is True
And now I feel myself rising as I emerge, I emerge from the deep
And now Love, finally, I can bear, so I dive, I dive into that timeless sea
