Beside the lilac filled with honey dew.
I’d hold you gently in my arms and say
You are me and I’m in love today.
Where is the wickedness in l oving all our self?
Even in the night and when it’s done with stealth?
I dream, I speak and understand myself
Enriched forever with this new and precious wealth
And then I’ll love my neighbour if he’s very kind
And if he has a free and open mind.
For if we love ourselves we are relaxed
And so we need to make no cold attacks.
was in fragments lying on the ground
Until these bits a passing angel found
I was put into a kiln to bake
Thus now I am a brick or maybe a sponge-cake.
Let’s enjoy our humour as we come and go
And as the laughter starts yet tears may flow.
For I was you and you were me not long ago
Accept our losses as we onward flow…
The river runs,the clouds blow by
The heavens open yet my mouth is dry.
Don’t ask a question that begins with why.
Remember just we live and then we die.
Oh,send me roses and your orchids wild
I have loved flowers since I was a child
So when I die, let them die too
First covering me in scent and fragrant dew.
To mystery and darkness we are sent at last
As nightfall comes and our day has passed.
To dreams of heaven and the long ago
When Eden was on earth and gentle winds did blow
