I Want to Meet Your Light

I want to meet your light

right at the front

of your eyes,



shining from deep in your center

where the hearth crackles.

I want the light to meet me

right out front

and invite me inside,


You’ll know it’s safe

because my light will meet you there

at the doorsteps of our souls.

And you will see clearly

into me too.

And you’ll see that I don’t want

to take anything

or change anything

or condemn anything.

You’ll see that I just want to enjoy what’s in there, that

I just want to like you.

You’ll know it’s safe

because my eyes

will be warm and opened to you,

trusting that you too will move with care and mercy,

as you come through my world

to join me

at my fire.
